    If i soak my chickens pellets over night with their wheat, will it be all right to eat in the morning , will mould have formed on it?

    It will be OK, go ahead and feed it to them. Mold would not grow overnight but a few days, yes. If you are not going to use it right away, go ahead and refigerate it.

    also i dont know what to do i haven't seen my chickens eat in days i tried oaten chaffe soaked wheat and pellets and green but i never see them eating they are in with six birds 3 budgies love bird and 2 princess parrots male and female i dont know if maybe they are eating and im not seeing it or if they are just eating the bird seed that has dropped




    Also my ducks used to eat soaked pellets my duck is 10 weeks old cooper is 7 weeks and marble is 8 weeks all will go up a week on sunday but they dont eat it soaked anymore because everytime i would put it in there bowl i would come back an hour later and it will smell of rotten milk we went through like three bags of food a week i just thought it might have grown mould over night


    thanks for the help
