Ive been using FF for my new quail for the 3 weeks since they hatched.
for the first 3 weeks I used a mix of game bird starter and ultrakibble.
now I am moving them to an organic egg layer mash. However, it is only 16% protein so I am wanting to enhance with some #3 trout pellets that are 50%. they are primarily fish meal based.
I will end up mixing at approx a 3/1 ratio to get 24%.
My question is have any of you tried to ferment fish meal? Do you think it is safe?
I assume that the natural ferment I already have going will keep out bad bacteria.
So far I have just been sprinkling the fish meal pellets over the top of the FF when I feed. But would like to mix it to ensure all birds get same ratio.
researching on the internet didnt turn up much so far.
I did find this site that had some interesting info on feeding fermented food to chickens and also some links.
let me know your thoughts on putting the fish meal trout food in with my ferment.
