My first chicks are coming from Meyer in late Feb. or early March, and I'm starting to get ready. I'm reading up on how to feed and care for the little guys (or, hopefully, girls!), but I'm having a hard time getting a handle on just how much bantam babies are going to eat. I don't want to buy a huge bag of starter, and then be left with all kinds of leftovers when the chicks switch to "big kid" food. Can anyone tell me how big a bag I should get -- or if there's anywhere to buy chick starter in bulk? Meyer has a "starter kit" of 5 lbs. medicated chick starter, 1 lb. starter grit, 1 vitamin electrolyte package, and 1 package of Grogel for $23.94, but I honestly have no idea how far this stuff will go with 17 bantams. Once they're old enough for us to sex them accurately we'll be down to 6 - 8 of them, and hopefully find homes for the rest.... Thanks for your help!
