Ok, I have a question for the fermented feed feeders out there. When you talk about fermented feed, are you talking about using regular crumble/pellets or scratch grains and raw stuff? I am asking because the group on FB (not the crazy control freaks) was talking about it and one member made the comment that you should never ferment crumbles/pellets just grains. So I've been floating around the web reading different FF sources and I see talk about grains and "feed" but not finding specifics to crumbles/pellets being fermented and now it has me all confused.
Funny that you say this because that's exactly what I did with the ones that weren't wanting to try it! And it worked! Guess my brain works good sometimes!
Day or night my birds (both chickens and turkeys) know the difference between me and a coyote or dog or possum or coon. A reassuring word brings contented clucks.
I haven't had a mean rooster around since I was a kid, and he "accidentally" got in the way of the tractor mower deck. My roos retreat to the far side of the coop or yard when I enter. The tom turkeys don't, they walk nearby, but if I turn and face them they retreat.
