    We had great results last year with fermented feed. We started the Cornish rocks about halfway through their lives, which is when I first learned about fermented feed.

    We are getting a new batch of cornish rock chicks today, when should I start them on fermented feed? Also, we are brooding some pullets along with them (well until the rocks grow enough to move to their coop), will fermented feed be okay for the pullets as well or will have need to seperate them for feeding purposes?

    You can start FF from day one. All chicks will benefit from it, not just meat birds. We feed our laying flock FF and have had wonderful results.
