chick feed

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by magpiesing, Mar 7, 2014.

  1. I've been reading several references to fermented feed. Is this better than regular chick starter feed? Is is something to supplement regular feed? I think I also how to make it yourself. I'm planning for chicks. Just waiting for the weather to get more stable. No more freezing nights. Want to feed them the best I can. Thanks Magpie

    Sometimes people consider it much better. You can certainly use it as a supplement, or you can use it plainly as the sole food source.

    However, using just normal feed isn't by any means a bad method of feeding your chicks.
