    I have decided to start doing the Fermented Feed thing. I bought the stuff and mixed up my first bucket tonight. So it's all mixed up and doing it's thing in the bucket for the next couple of days... What I need to know is how do I go about feeding it to the birds? Do I feed it once a day or twice? if i put it out in the morning will it be okay all day until it's gone?

    I'm excited to start this new feeding program. Thanks for all the help BYC'ers!

    I usually feed mine FF first thing in the morning and they eat on it through out the day. On colder days I feed them FF twice a day once in the morning and once in the evening before they roost since they tend to eat more to keep themselves warmer. But that's just me :)

    There is a thread called " Fermented Feed.... is anyone using them " I think it will give you a lot of GREAT information.
