    I am looking for someone who has kept track of the cost of feeding their meat birds. I am considering ordering 25-30 meat birds, possibly cornish. Still deciding breed because of elevation. My husband is a numbers man.......so I am preparing a "cost analysis" for him. [​IMG] LOL. I am not looking for an exact number just a really good idea of the cost of feeding these birds for 8-12 weeks? I think that is about the time line?????? [​IMG]

    I have already figured the cost for purchasing the birds and the processing, just trying to figure out the amount of feed they might go through.

    Your help and insight is appreciated!!!!
