    :eek:I have 13 6 week old chicks....and now that they have gotten kinda over the mange look they are cute again :) But man...these things can eat!!! Will the keep eating more and more or is this about the amount they will always eat? A 25lb. sack of feed isn't lasting too long at all...which is ok...but I was just curious if their appitietes will incease as they get older?

    What kind of chicks? Are you going to let them free range at all? Do you feed them any garden scraps or kitchen scraps? These all help reduce the feed bills!

    I feed them scraps now...we have a garden and the are LOVING the fresh veges. and any bread we have too.
    They are RIR, Barred Rock, and Silkies. They always seems to be hungry...and love to see me coming because they know I have some snacks for them.
