    Got this off a feed bag ran it against the amounts I have used and it works out close to my experience. A chick eats four pounds in the first eight weeks. So four times that is 32 pounds for yours to reach eight weeks. So about 6.1 days if my math is right. Of course they eat less when just hatched and then there is the usual wastage. The amounts can vary.
