    I know this topic has been gone over again and again. I've read quite a bit on this site and on others about fermenting feed and have that part down. What I have a question about is how often should I be feeding the chicks the FF? They range in age from 3 weeks to 5 weeks. Right now I've been feeding it to them three times a day but I feel like they aren't getting enough. That brings me to my next question....how do you supply a constant source of FF? Right now I'm putting the FF in the plastic feeder troughs and removing it when they have finished. Obviously a gravity feeder wouldn't really work, right? Is there another way to feed it or should I just continue feeding as I have been? Thank you for any advice you guys can spare!!!!!
