How much do you give your Stock Birds when they are moulting?

I know some people give their stock birds as much as they want when they are moulting, and some just give them a normal amount (whatever that might be).

I am not sure - What do you members think?

Edgie - do you mean you fed each bird the same amount?  For example One and a half ounces per bird, per day - or something like that?

Do you have any troubles with getting your young birds in Mark?

I guess, they are not hungry most of the time.  My y/bs will not come unless they are hungry.

By the way I am ONLY talking about Stock birds when they are moulting! Everyone.
