    I wanna make my chickens warm mash this winter. How much water do you put. Just say that I use a solo cup of flock raiser, a cup of layer mash and a cup of corn. And I'll add more stuff when it gets colder. How much water would I add to this mixture? And then later on how do you know how much to add.

    I used layer mash and just added h20 until it was the consistency of mash potatoes.I added garlic powder,canola oil or grease from cooking anything extra from the table scraps

    yes very thick and crumbly, not wet and soupy. Just damp.
    This time of year I smash tomatoes up to dampen. Then apples or pumpkin later in fall. A little yogurt is a good thing to use too. Just about anything..

    I cooked up whatever veggies we get - potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, etc with some grain and mash into all together. We get old produce from the grocery store so they have something different all the time. Also use apples, broc., beets, etc.

    Great. We have a ton of apple trees so I could give them fresh apples in it too.

    I just made Jasmin rice as my base ( which they love ) added crumble, pumpkin, meal worms, and sunflower kernels... they are going to town.
