Chickens are usually raised free-range or semi-grazed. If the garden is large and abundant with food (vegetables, grass, worms, crickets, locusts, etc.), the amount of refined food should be reduced. Observe chicken kites in the afternoon before entering the coop to know if the chickens are full or hungry, need to feed more or less and pay attention to disease prevention for chickens.
