    Does anyone have a weekly chart?

    I prefer to feed them several times during the day instead of a mass amount of food all at once.

    Hmm, I don't have anything by week, but my pen of 8 Cornish X and 4 DP cockerels is eating about 7lbs/day and they are 3.5 weeks old.

    I actually just went in to check on them and I had filled the feeder late yesterday afternoon... its basically 1/2 full this morning. I don't remember how much they were eating before this point. The first week maybe 2 cups total for the group/day? Basically I just opened my 2nd bag of feed for them yesterday.

    Hope that helps!

    Yeah that kinda helps. I've just been going out there every 90 minutes and giving them two cups of food.
