I need to do some math here. 1 chick eats how much per day/ week/ month. (chick starter) I was thinking of trying to breed Buff O's as they seem in demand in my area. They are going from 10 to 20 per bird depending on if it is laying or not. It seems that most people sell checks at 10 weeks +. I figured I could get 10 -12 per hen. BUT I need to figure out food cost. I don't want do this for a living, but would like to make enough to cover cost of my own flock etc. I have 3 out buildings and 1 acre of land for the birds.
