Hello everyone! I have a situation that I could use help on. I am currently feeding a non GMO soy free layer feed 16%. Cracked and whole grains with powders/additives. The beginning of March I started fermenting the feed. With fermenting the feed each chicken and duck is getting over 1/4 lb- before wetting down to ferment. 13 1/2 lbs dry food turning into almost 50 lb with oatmeal consistency. I feed once a day that is resulting in the chickens and ducks eating all the food in 15 minutes. Now good thing is a lot of my chickens have become healthier and they are actually eating all the feed and they are not wasting the feed like before. I was probably loosing 1/4 of the food before. Problem is the ducks and chickens have stopped laying- I was getting 5-6 chickens eggs a day- now 2 a day and 2 duck eggs a day to none. The only ones that have kept laying are my Pekins that started laying in January. The chickens also get kitchen scraps like veggies and such in the morning. They have free choice calcium. They also get mealwormrs at least once a week.l I am going to start some fodder trays to feed them in the morning too. I have also considered making flock blocks. I am just wondering if I need to think about feeding them more. I am trying to do their food the most effective and less waste as I can. Once the garden gets going they will have scraps and weeds there as well. I am just worried as they have been on it for a month now and with daylight hours (I am in Michigan) I would be expecting more laying. I am also worried because come June we will have a Farm Share program that includes eggs. Quick note is they are getting about the same amount in dry weight as they were before I started fermenting it. Thank you all in advance!
