For those of you thinking about going to FF, here is the what I use:
(In approximate measure using a metal coffee can)
6 cans All Flock
1 can of scratch feed
1 can oats
1 can alfalfa pellets
I combine all of these is a large container. Then I use this mix to ferment. I use three buckets for the fermenting stage, meaning it ferments for three days.
I put the feed in a bucket, cover the feed with water and stir until completely wetted thoroughly. I make sure there is some water completely covering the feed. I do not stir the feed again until I get ready to feed it. The water standing on the top will absorb into the feed. I do not add more water to keep the feed covered. The feed is like some kind of thick mortar when I feed it. I leave approximately one cup of feed in the bottom of the bucket to use as a starter.
Easy Peary! No draining. Not stirring and stirring and stirring. I don't cover with lids or cloths either, bugs in the FF is extra protein.
I feed them enough that everyone gets full and there is some left over.
In the winter, I feed extra feed. On my days off I wait until feeders are clean before I feed them again.
