    I have done my homework, the coop is almost done, we have the area contained to put the coop in, and we will pick up our 4 chicks in 2 weeks. I know in all my reading I'm sure I could figure this out, but I need a little help and math was NEVER my strong point. How long will a 50lb bag of feed last my 4 little chicks.

    thank you,
    Janet

    Are you asking about how long it will last your chicks, or after they are adults? If chicks, 50lbs will last 4 a very long time. Adult chickens it will last them around a month and a half.
