    I've raised meaties for a while, but with our move to our new home, I'm also going to start with layers too. How much feed would a flock of say, 75 layers go through in a week? Any guesstimates?

    We have 25 and they eat about 40lbs so your looking at about 120lbs a week.

    My guess is 131.25 lbs a week. [​IMG]
