Yes chickens do stop eating the chicken feed when they are full.

Just like humans stop eating when they are full as well as other animals the chickens do know when they are full and will stop eating.

So just make sure you keep out enough food for the chicken to eat through the day and they will know when they are hungry and when they are full.

Chickens need plenty of food to fatten them up and to allow them to lay eggs.

Also be sure to keep water out for the chickens at all times so they can access water when they are thirsty.

The chicken will drink when they are thirsty and stop drinking when they are not.

I would not recommend leaving chicken feed out all night though because other animals could be attracted to it and chickens will sleep at night and not come out to eat anyway.
