    I want to try this fermenting feed thing I have been reading about, but I was wondering if i could use it on all my avian friends. We have chicken, turkeys, guineas,geese and ducks. I am also wondering if i have this fermenting thing right. I was thinking of doing a two bucket system and just soaking feed in water? Is that all i have to do? I was also wondering if soaking their base feed(game starter crumble) with whole oats and some cracked corn is a good combination?

    I don't see why ff wouldn't be good idea for the rest of your birds. Improves nutrition and gut health. Just be sure your protein levels are you want them to be if you dilute their feed with the oats and corn.
