How to prevent your chicken getting fat.

Do not over treat, chickens will free feed much like cows, they graze on their feed throughout the day, ensure your chicken’s feeder always has feed in but keep this feed as per the recommended pellet feed for the age of hen you have. You can supplement this with treats but treats should only make up 10-20% maxim of their diet. Do not feed your hens purely on scraps and corn as this will cause them to hold onto too much fat.
