    So how much does your peeps eat? I have 11 bared rock pullets and they eat about 1qt feeder full in 10 hours with very little waste.

    They are growing so fast now lots of feathers had to cover the brooder with chicken wire to keep them in. They will be 2 weeks old on wednesday.

    Mine eat A LOT. I decided not to try and figure the particulars and just keep the feeders full. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] ...
