I bet! I've got 24 layers and they are eating a fair bit of feed even though they have access to the outdoors all day long. Can't imagine how much meat birds would eat. Guess I'll be seeing an increased intake when the snow hits. Not much nutrition in snow.This will REALLY help with the feed situation.
Winter before long and they won't be wanting to move anyway. Besides, you can't move them after surgery, for a while. You could always wait a month before moving to DS house.They will have a bigger pen up there too than they have here, but it won't be moveable like the chicken tractor here. Something to consider
