    Chris, I have a rather weird question, but, how do you serve the FF to the chickens?

    Sorry Friends... I should have expanded on my question a bit. I was wondering if you have special sort of pan or bowl you put it in for them. I don't want to flop it on the ground. Thanks

    As I said in my last post, I just top there regular feed.
    There regular feed is in a trough feeder.

    Its called Country Junction Hen Scratch. It's wheat, oats and peas - 13.5% protein. I thinks it's only available in western canada.

    This is what my trough feeders look like but they usually hang outside. A piece of gutter screwed onto a piece of works too but like to hang mine.

    Hi,
    You say Grain,
    can the flock starter crumble be fermented for four days ? Or shorter ?
    Thanks
