Yepper, they eat-alot!! I have 22 and they go through about 14 lbs in 2 days! They're only 10-6 wk olds. Good luck!

THe average adult chicken eats 1/4lb / day
So lets say all your are full grown.
35x.25x7=61 lbs.
So I think your right on target.

Quote:Good math. Kinda surprising aint it?

Its even more surprising when you learn that 70% of what a chicken eats - goes right back out as manure!
