My fermented feed is simply chick starter and water since I don't have any laying chickens yet. Enough water to moisten the feed, make sure your bucket will withstand significant expansion! Leave sit in a warm place, stir about every 6 hours for 2-3 days. Once it starts to smell a little sour and you can see bubbles it is ready to feed! As soon as I see an egg, my ff will then be just layer feed and water. No ingredients, no additives, no starter, no grains.
