I just got 18 pullets from tractor supply. I got the start and gro food for them. I also got the screw on quart jar feeder . In like 5 hours they have eaten the whole jar. Should I keep jar full or just fill it one time a day? Does this grammer suit you?

I'm contacting management to eliminate this troll, so don't waste your time with this "I love chicken breasts" idiot.

Sundancer is our hero. That guy was the definition of a TROLL. To answer your question, with 18 pullets, I believe they will need more food than that.

If you have 18, I think you should keep it full. If they seem like they are eating to much leave in half way. Hope that's good advice:)

Keep food and water availabe 24/7 for chicks until they are completely feathered. They need all that food to help them grow. Once they are decent size and completely feathered you can feed twice a day.
