Okay, so I'm trying to figure up how much it would be to raise 50 meat chicks. The feed store is trying to get rid of them, so they're dropping the price. I'm estimating 12 weeks till I butcher, since I want them to get big (which in my guesstamation would make them about 10 pounders). My flock of 25 eats about 50lbs of feed a week at 3 months old .....how much more would 50 meat birds consume? Twice that? Based on 100lbs of feed per week, for 50 meat chicks.....plus their individual cost....that averages out to $6.75 apiece.....if you divide that by .69/lb, which is about the price you'd get it in the store.....that's how much an 8lb chicken would be (a size you won't see in the store). Is my math right???? Or will they eat more than twice what a normal chicken eats????
