how much fermented feed for 36 birds every 2 weeks?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm just curious how much fermented feed 36 birds will go through in a 2 week period. I read somewhere that someone only went through 50 lbs of feed every 3 weeks for 50 birds. That doesn't sound like a whole lot considering I went through about 200 pounds dry feed every two weeks with 52 birds at one point. Thanks in advance 😆

50# FF lasts my flock of 27 birds just under 3 weeks.  That's with addition of about 1 qt of scratch/day.  Not much opportunity for goodies free range this time of year.

Jesus Christ is my pilot.

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

Breeding a winter hearty flock with small combs and colored eggs.

Favorite breeds:  Dominique and EE.  Hatching addict.
