    • Hi Wadda,
      If you have a calculator divide 4 (lbs/mo) by 30 (days). It gets a little tricky in the winter, (depending on location, i.e. midwest and north east) but you will be supplying their entire diet approximately 5-6 lbs per month. The rest of the year, if they are foraging, more like 3-4 lbs per month. It also depends on the feed, and breed of the chicken, as well as your location as previously stated.

      Best of luck!
