I have 10 chicks that are 1 week old and I have 25 chicks that are 2 weeks old. How much food per chick should I be feeding them and how often? I am new to this.

I just filled the feed containers and would refill when empty. I did not worry about how much to feed them they just free feed/

Mine are in brooders right now but they seem to eat non stop if I leave the feed in there and if I take it out they chirp forever.

Keep food and water available 24/7.

I remove the waterer daily clean with bleach then refill. The feeder, when they are first hatched I use a very small feeder, after the first week I move up in size. I try to estimate how much then can eat in 24 hours, then I remove the feeder discard remaing feed and clean feeder, refill, replace.
