I'm starting a new batch of chicks in early April. My current flock is doing very well on fermented feed. Does any one have experience starting chicks right away of fermented feed? Or do you typically start them on chick starter crumble and then switch to fermented feed? also, lets hear from folks who get chicks going on greens, sod, soil, grit. How soon do you start these when brooding artificially. I'm of the camp that Mama hen would not limit her hatchlings to stuff in a bag, so I won't either!
