How much feed (Layers Pellets) in weight or any other kind of measurement do you feed your free range laying hens per day?

Do you have to feed them more winter?

What is the area legally required for Free Range or Organic Layers to be outside on grass?

    Hi, what i do is i have food infront of my chickens all the time, even if they are free range( mine are). They dont get fat. If you have food infront of them all the time you don't have to worry about one being bullied and not getting any food and they will not fight over it when you put new food down.

    Me to, and every night before they're shut in they have sweetcorn, spinach, raisens and sometimes mash potato.
    Then at weekends they have porridge in the morning and tuna a lunch time.
