Hi, I have only ever raised regular standard breeds and a few bantams but never broilers. I got an email from a hatchery with their broilers on sale and need to know a few things befor I go and buy 25-50 meat birds. These are the kind that are ready to kill in 7-8 weeks. How much feed do they need and what kind? I normally always give my chicks medicated started feed until they are laying age. Of course these chicks will be different so any suggestions? Also I will only be buying my feed from the local farmers co-op/farm store type place and do not make/mix my own feed.
