So I'm interested in fermenting my chicken's feed but I don't have a bucket with a lid, is there a way to do it in a container that doesn't have a lid?

You can use a bowl with a plate on top of it. I use a 5 gal bucket with apizza pan on top. The bucket i feef from haa no lid. I have a 2 bucket rotation. One that i feed from and one that is fermenting.

I am using 2 plastic folgers coffee cans (I just dont snap the lids all the way on)...the ones about 3 lb size for the time being until my kitty litter pail is empty
