Fermenting feed methods

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have heard fermenting feed is pretty good for chickens. What are the best methods for fermenting feed?


Any help with this will be greatly appreciated!
The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.

Have you seen this active thread? http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/645057/fermented-feeds-anyone-using-them lots of stuff regarding fermented feed; may be too much ;)

 

I switched to fermented feed for a while and even though I reported that I saw some benefit, that may have just been a bit of enthusiasm on my part because I was trying something new :hu

 

After giving it 6-8 months with my small flock, I switched back to coarse grain organic and to be honest, did not notice any change.

 

Having said that, I definitely think it is worth a try if people wish and they can then make a judgement on their own experience.

 

Having a small flock of bantams, I used the 3 jar/3 day method which is nice and simple:
