How much food per day for chicks?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am starting an egg business and looking for a little info. I know that all a full grown henn needs per day is 0.3 pounds of food. I want to know how much a chick needs per day for about the first 7 weeks of their life.

Okay, I just read online that the baby chick does not really need a lot of food. Here's the link to the page http://www.avianaquamiser.com/posts/How_much_food_do_chicks_need__63__/. Feel free to give any new info.

Chicks should have free and constant daylight access to food and water. They will eat as much as they need, as and when they want.

Thanks for the info CT. I've been in the chicken business for a little while now and am looking to cut feed costs and am being quite successful with my layers. I'll just feed them as much as they want. That's what I've been doing anyhow.
