    I have been giving my Jersey Giants a 22% feed mixed with some Greek yogurt. just today finished fermenting their dry feed. So now I'm feeding the 1.5 week old chicks fermented feed. Their main purpose is for meat but I would like to keep any that might b good layers or good breeding stock. I'm also going to acquire some adult araucanas (for breeding) and some older chicks. My purpose for the araucanas is eggs and showing for 4h.
    Would you feed them all the 22% protein fermented feed or should I get a lower protein feed for the araucanas. Also should I ferment the araucanas feed?

    Hi,

    I'm afraid I can't answer but maybe someone else can. But maybe someone else can.

    No worries.. I was not able to obtain the araucanas due to some financial issues...
    Just keeping it simple for now!

    Thanks!
