Approx. how much feed does it take to raise a chicken to age 5 mos. ? Does anyone measure their feed per bird per day? or does anyone "ration" their feed per day? Now I've been contacted by a person wanting two hens age less than a year. Now how much would you charge. Certainly at that age they are just starting to lay and you've been feeding them for all that time. It hardly makes sense to sell them for $5 when they are just beginning to earn their keep don't you think?
