    Hi all,

    I've got chicken fever bad and I thinking of picking up some extra pullets to raise and sell when they start laying.

    Can anyone give me an idea roughly how many pounds of feed it takes to raise a bird from day old to laying? I want to get an idea of the feed cost to before heading to the chick store.

    Thanks in advance,
