These are basic guidelines but give you a good idea of how much baby chicks will eat:
-15 lbs of feed to raise a white egg layer pullet (from chick to first egg),
-18 lbs of feed to raise a brown egg layer pullet (from chick to first egg)
-10 lbs of feed to raise a Cornish cross broiler to 7 weeks of age.
When a standard size chicken (example: Rhode Island Red hen) is at 6 months of age it will consume 1.5 lbs of feed weekly.
