    I was wondering is anyone out there feed activated EM-1 (effective microorganism) bokashi to their chickens?
    I have used activated EM for several years as a ground spray to help breakdown the chicken manure and keep the smell down when it rains here. I also use it in my garden and in my composting bin and it really speeds up the process.
    I just read an article about feeding bokashi to livestalk feed at a rate of 5% of their feed. They were mainly talking about cattle, pig, sheep and goats though, but wondering why no mention of chickens?
    I did google search and all I could find was info about composting chicken manure using bokashi.
    Anyone use EM in their chicken feed? or any other use around garden yard?

    bokashi has been discussed (use the search function)
    Read this for specific info on uses and claims of EM bokashi:
    my personal opinion based on the literature I have read is that this is not a suitable product to feed to poultry.
