    At what age do I stop giving my chickens as much food as they like. I put out enough that it takes them a few days to a week to get it eaten. They are almost four weeks old now, and they don't seem to be pigging out as of yet. However I was wondering about the age when I should stop giving food overnight. When I do stop placing food overnight; do I also leave the waterer out too?
