    Does anyone have an estimate of how much chick starter food each chick would go through in a week?

    I have no idea how much EACH of my six chicks go through in a week. But I have six 2 week old golden sex links and they go through alittle more than half of a 25 lb bag of chick starter in a week.

    Maybe the breed of chickens might make a difference in the amount of feed. My 5 BA's went through a 40# bag in 8 weeks. I am going to feed them the flock raiser/flock growth next. We'll see how long that lasts-- they went through a quart of food in 2 days,{ their appetite is increasing}
