I've been researching the typical amount of feed a pullet will consume from hatch to point of lay at twenty weeks. Obviously there are a number of variables involved that can affect this but I'm looking for general or average amounts. What I've been finding online indicates between sixteen to twenty two pounds of feed per bird. The lesser amount for light birds like Leghorns and the greater amount for heavier dual purpose breeds. Is this in line with what you folks have found? I'm thinking of putting in a larger than usual chick order so I can sell some ready to lay pullets at the swaps. Feed cost being the single greatest expense in doing this I'm trying to get a grasp of what my expenses are generally going to be which in turn will shape the selling price I'll have to ask for. What have you folks found?
