FERMENTED FEEDING

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Ok, I know I've seen the thread on Fermented Feeding in the past, have tried it but it's been several years since I last had chickens, need a refresher....Feed + water an inch above feed + ACV (1T) + mix daily = fermented feed....Adding feed to replenish?  I also did the ACV (1 T) in the water (gal), think it was?  What I can't recall is can this be done with Chick Starter?  Egg Maker?   I'm in Hawaii so don't have to deal with Winter weather :)    Thanks for any refresher course.

You can ferment any kind of feed.

Here's all you need to know.

Thank you.  Most of what I've read were for "a lot" of chickens, I'll be getting 4 pullets (hatch Oct 14) so won't be needing much.  The last time I made FF, used a plastic strainer (netting) which took forever to drain, read using "metal" not advised.  Chick starter/egg maker is not so easy to drain as with grain, any advice?

I use a 5 gallon plastic bucket. Mix a gallon of feed and a gallon of warm water let it set for a few days til fermented, and feed. When It gets low maybe like down to a feeding or so I add another gallon of feed and gallon of water. Stirring everyday. I have been advised against metal or glass containers. I use my plastic one I got from firehouse subs.
