Chicks, Chickens, and Feeders

When you get your chicks, you will want a smaller feeder like the one shown below. This will work for the first 13 days or so that your chicks are in a brooder. Plan on one of these feeders for each 12-15 chickens.

At the two week mark, you will want to switch to a larger feeder, or add another small feeder in each brooder setup. You will also use this larger feeder after the chickens feather out and are moved to their larger pen or chicken tractor. One of these larger feeders will feed up to 25 birds or so if you allow them to free range a bit too. A larger feeder is shown below.
