P2 got these at the the Poultry Education Day this past Sunday. The old owner said to give them as much as they can eat. Okay I think it too much since they are Lemon Bantams. So what is the right amount to feed them. They should not be on the same poundage as his dual purpose chickens.

Well I found a wall mount feeder and we are keeping it 1/2 full. They like to scratch EVERYTHING out and eat on the ground. A little bite nasty for my taste.

Couldn't tell you how much they are supposed to eat but I put an old heavy enamel pan 9x13 under my wall mount feeder(it contains oyster shells and grit)to contain the mess and stop waste. The pan had chips in the enamel so you wouldn't want to bake with it but sure is heavy so the chickens can't flip it over.

Hello. yes, these birds definitely need access to food and water at all times. Putting a heavy dish under the feeder reduces waste, or you could try a different feeder with smaller holes. Enjoy!
