Under favorable conditions, approximately how many pounds of feed are required to raise a Plymouth Rock broiler to fourteen weeks of age or about two and one-half pounds weight?

Ten to Twelve pounds.

I think it's interesting that in 1932, farmers were shooting for having a broiler "ready" in 14 weeks and dressing out to 2 pounds. Now days, a Cornish cross broiler will dress out to 3 pounds in six weeks, and that's conservative. I have rushed them and got 3.5 in 5 and a half.
