OOPS ... I'm at work, and wasn't supposed to hit submit yet ...
It's a very small hen about 2-3 pounds - nothing massive (she wouldn't eat it all anyway!) I get them from the organic butcher, so they are quite small compared to the ones you see in the grocery store.
She gets this once a week (usually on Friday or Saturday). Kyleigh only eats once a day (her choice, she flat out won't eat in the morning).
So if she gets this meal on Friday evening, I certainly don't expect her to eat a full meal the next night.
I'm lucky in that Kyleigh controls how much she eats. There have been plenty of times she only eats half the chicken, and she's done. I toss it in the freezer and give her the rest the next weekend.
Also, in terms of normal feeding, I put down about 1.5 pounds of food (meat / bone / organ, etc.) and she eats until she's full and I put the rest back. Some nights she eats it all, other nights, she leaves some behind.
