I now have a flock of 21 hens (of which 3 are bantams) and two bantam roosters. This past summer I had 5 RR roosters put into an order as packing peanuts and DS would not let me cull so we raised them. Well I knew I was going through a little more food than I had last winter but I had the same # of birds? I was going through 50# in less than a week. Roosters left two weeks ago and I am now going through #50 in a week & 1/2 to two weeks. I free feed so it isn't because I am holding back. Packing peanuts were not suppose to be included per ordering insturctions but next time they will be culled.
