I'm thinking of 'stocking up' on pullet chicks to raise as POL pullets, for sale next spring. MPC has a very good special going on right now. POL pullets, in the spring anyway, can sell for anywhere from $8 to $15 each, depending on the breed. I am considering getting one each of the BR, EE, and rainbow egg layer assortments. That would give me 75 chicks, give or take. We would only keep about 10 or so, to replace our RIR layers. So that would give me 60-65 to raise for selling. Right now I have about 100 chickens (mostly bantam), 20 ducks, 60+ quail, 15 or so guineas, and a couple of geese. I spend about $25 a week on feed. I feed all the 'outside birds' a combination of a 16% feed that my feed store mixes and cracked corn, and the quail and baby birds get a 20% flock raiser. I was thinking that I could mix the flock raiser and the 16% feed once the chicks are over 2 weeks old, which would cut down on the feed cost. Then once they are about 8 weeks or so I could give them nothing but the 16%, which is only about $6 a bag. I was thinking, since these would be LF chickens, they would probably eat half as much as I feed my other birds total, does this sound about right? How much should I expect to feed 50 to 60 LF chicks from day-olds to about 5 months?
