Can I feed fermented chick feed to babies?

I went to TSC yesterday to get some PDZ and flock raiser(which they don’t carry) and ran into chick days. Something I have never succumbed to. They had so many chicks out and 2 boxes that hadn’t even been opened. Walked out with 2 each Brahma and faverolles pullets and 4 assorted straight run bantams. What an idiot! I have 3 groups of chicks I’ve raised this year totaling 39. Anyway I started fermenting feed recently and am wondering if I can feed it to 3 day old chicks. One of them is a little slower this evening so I scrambled the only egg I had but it is a serama egg- better that than none, right? One arrived with a pasty but but nothing since.

Yes they can ... I've been fermenting for several years now, start with the smallest bag of medicated chick starter, then switch to Flock Raiser. You may want to give them Nutri Drench or Sav a Chick (electrolytes) to help with the stress of shipping.
