Definitely BOSS, they all go nuts for that...but it's expensive.  My favorite healthy thing to give them is fermented feed.  I use soy free Scratch and Peck feed, Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar, and a little juice from my homemade sauerkraut.  I add those things, water to cover, let it sit for 3 days and feed them!

I'm going to try to ferment some scratch that says it's 8% protein... I might be wrong I'll have to check again. What will the protein level be after fermenting? And do I cover the jar for fermenting?

Don't cover anything fermenting tightly. If it is a jar, it could explode.

The protein will be the same, what is there may be more bioavailable. Ferment doesn't create protein.

8% is about right for scratch, possibly as high as 10 depending on what seeds are in it.
