Just as simple as it sounds. About how much feed would 25 Cornish Cross meaties eat until they reach 8-9 weeks of age? Just trying to get an estimation on how much food we're going to have to buy.

To 9 weeks I'd think closer to a quarter ton [ 500 lbs ] and hope to hold it to 400

for 25 really??? I said I was guessing

I can't find my slips from last year. I downsized to 25 birds in '09. That would have worked out great wouldn't have it.

I don't think I used more than 8 bags to get them to processing (chick starter and broiler feed). So that's 400 lbs.

Feed costs us around $12-13 a 50lb bag at a local feedstore for chickstarter and broiler.
