    I am not quite sure what you mean, but if you are asking what is the most chicks I have raised at a time, then 10. I am easy beat on this.

    This year we're doing about 50 or so. But last year, our neighbor did 400: most were meaties.

    I have around 150 right now. Not sure on the numbers, I keep hatching and selling them. I have three indoor brood boxes and two outdoor growout cages.

    The year the hatchery accidentally duplicated my grandfathers meatie order, 600+. That was just crazy. He was buying food by the pallet load.

    Just at the moment I have one hundred twenty one. Two more weeks I'll have another two or three dozen, but by then the oldest of the chicks I have now will be too old to really call them chicks.
