Yes...and many have reported that same thing and almost the same time frame. It's almost as if they lacked valuable nutrients, were finally getting them, and when their bodies had enough of those their eating leveled off to an amount that would maintain that level. It sort of reaffirms that they weren't getting what they needed from the feed in the first place and fermenting it had finally released those nutrients, minerals and vitamins to a greater level.We have started fermenting feed for our layer flock. I noticed that they are not eating as much as they were when we started the fermented feeds weeks ago. Is this normal?
Watch the size of your yolks for an increase in overall size...even the studies done on it in a commercial setting described an increased egg weight, but couldn't say why that was. I could visibly SEE the difference in the size, which was explanation enough for me why eggs got heavier on FF.
Here's a pic of one of my smallest eggs next to commercially grown eggs graded XL:
And here's one of our other members showing a before the FF and after the FF comparisons with her own eggs:
