    Seems like the chicks food container is always empty. They do throw a bit on the ground, but im filling it 2-3 times a day! (I have 12 chicks. 6 weeks old)
    How often should I feed? They are now living outside in the large area I have for them.

    Mine are the same age and I feed 1-2 times a day. They have their little quart jar feeders but a LOT of it goes on the floor and you may not notice cause it gets kicked around and hidden. You're doing just fine:)

    by the way... [​IMG]
