Once his bowl is empty I may wait hour or 2 then give him another 12.. So its around 4 or 5 times I give him I think.. Its not less than that anyway.. He's just had broccoli before our roast lol

What does it advise on the bags? I free feed mine pellets but it's not Harrisons high potency so i'm not sure if you can with those. It should advise though. To be honest they tend not to over eat.

It doesn't say how many pellets no..  Am I ok to feed him 12 3 or 4 times a day? I just don't want him to go hungry so usually give him some when his bowl is empty of the harrisons
