Here is a great help with the FF feedings. Tells you all you need to know.

Equal amount of feed/water  let ferment a 3 or 4 days, stirring daily and feed

you don't really need to be adding anything extra like yeast or yogurts or molasses etc

Greetings:

Thank you for your response to my issue of how many #'s of feed for 52 Chickens. I have tried traps & been more attentive  in looking for evidence of rodents & found none. With this result in mind I did suspend the feeders off the floor about 1' & now am refilling about every 2.5-3 days so most of my issue must have been a waste issue.Hopefully this will solve my issue.
