    We have anywhere from 20-30 throughout the year, depending of how many friends and family want and the amount of cockerels we have every hatch.

    They roam free all day on about 1/8 acre that's full of grass, hedges and so on. I guess the 4-6 bags has been the amount over Winter, and the buffs are a big breed, so Summer quantity will reduce a fair bit.

    I've been paying 6 per 20kg bag.

    Thanks in advance.
    There's a farm in Shilton (near Carterton) that sells Heygates - either pellets, meal or mixed corn for 6.30 per 20kg bag

    That's cheap! Thank you. I've found somewhere near home that does feed so will need to see how much they are charging!
