How much electricity do you use to keep a 250W bulb on 24/7? How much feed do you go through? (please tell me in lbs) At what age? How many are you feeding? What breed? I'm primarily interested in White Leghorns & Red Stars for a commercial flock and then White Rocks for a little side project. When do you switch from Chick Starter to Chick Grower to Chick Layer? I'm going to be feeding Southern States brand feed because that is what is available to me. How do you like it, if you feed it? I'm thinking about getting 75 chicks, but I will be selling all but about 15-30 of them. How easy have you found it to be to sell chicks (of the breeds I've mentioned) at 16-20 wks old for about $15-$20 each? I'm in Frederick County, MD if that gives you an idea of my market... However, I've already decided if I can't sell chicks by 24-28 wks old, I will be taking them to auction and hoping to get at least $5/hd off of them. Thank you for your input!
