    Hey,

    I have 25 chicks coming and I am wondering how much feeder space I need per chick? Also how much space per chick on the waters?

    Thanks,
    andrew3waz

    You'd probably want to start with one of the long chick feeders instead of the round ones. I use a round 3lb feeder for 6 19wk old birds and I have to add feed every day. I've never looked into bigger ones so I'm not sure what the next size up would be. I did a little search and couldn't find a set rule about how much space to give each bird. If you do a search on this site you'll find a lot of information about different feeders though.
