Any of you got some info on how many pounds of feed it takes to get a just hatched chick/pullet to a laying hen? I been thinking about keeping up with it, but I figure someone else has already got this info. Thanks!!

I kept fairly accurate records for feed with my 9 chicks this year, but had a span of 6 weeks in age and a couple cockerels to get rid of....but I'd estimate ~15lbs per bird from hatch to lay. Not a good sampling tho, I know.
