How Much Do They Eat?

I'm wondering just how much hummingbirds eat. I started this Spring with 1 feeder. And maybe 4 hummingbirds. I was refilling it maybe every 4 days or so.

Now we're up to 2 feeders, about 12 hummingbirds, and me filling both feeders every other day! Yes, that often. I have a 3rd feeder, but I'm wondering if maybe I'm feeding them too much. I'm just not sure. And I can't find any real concrete information.

I just refilled both feeders. And there is 1 hummingbird not letting the others get to the feeders. A typical day. But I'm just worried that I'm overfeeding the hummingbirds. And I don't want to do that. I just want our hummingbirds to be healthy.
