Hello everyone. Well my chicks are already two months old! I bought them for Ideal poultry two months ago(they were born on Nov 5th) i would appreciate any tips, or advice i might need to know that might be essential to know now that they are getting older. I have noticed that my chickens are eating feed at a faster rate now. and wanted to know what is the estimated amount of feed in pounds that is correctly to feed 13 chickens in one month( pounds per chicken a day or week would be great to know!) and also hw many times a day should i feed? i heard once in the morning and once in the evening, is this correct? I have 3 golden sex links, 2 red sex link, 2 white rocks, 3 easter eggers(two of which are going to be sold this month to make some room for more chickens) and 3 cornish crosses(these are like pets!) Also one thing i was wondering is that maybe instead of buying bags of feed in tractor supply i should maybe buy wholesale. Does anyone know where i might be able to buy wholesale feed-more feed for less money (stores, suggestions?)? (in the orlando area would be great) Also what would be a great way to feed chickens another type of foodsource to also save money on feed? I feed them extra leftover rice( i clean the rice before i feed them), some weeds that i have available, and lettuce. I appreciate the help with this, thank you very much!
