    I'm just curious how much fermented feed 36 birds will go through in a 2 week period. I read somewhere that someone only went through 50 lbs of feed every 3 weeks for 50 birds. That doesn't sound like a whole lot considering I went through about 200 pounds dry feed every two weeks with 52 birds at one point. Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    50# FF lasts my flock of 27 birds just under 3 weeks. That's with addition of about 1 qt of scratch/day. Not much opportunity for goodies free range this time of year.
