OK, heres the deal. There was an accident on hwy 50, about 1/2 mile from my home. No one was hurt...Thank Goodness...but the big rig dumped a whole load of Barley on the side of the road. This Barley came from the distillery...its wet, and hot. They are going to leave it there for the birds, deer, whatever. There is about 100 tons of it. So, I went down, put a tarp in my truck, and filled it. Brought it home, and tomorrow, will lay it in the sun, and turn it to dry. Now, because this came from the distillery...is it good for my chickens? I did put some in with the pig...he went NUTS over it! I then threw a few hand fulls to the chickens....same reaction. LOVED it. My concern is...is it "good" for them?? I brought home about a ton...no kidding...thats a LOT of barley. My neighbor said it was about 36 % protiene?? He got some for his hogs and birds. I just want to make sure its ok for them...so...what do you eggsperts think?? Should I go get more to dry and store for them?
