That is what I do. Used to ferment, but it just smelled like it soured sometimes, so I quit fermenting and just started giving wet feed. They all love it and scarf it down. I just wet it when I head out to the coop. By the time I am there, it has absorbed.My chickens think that layer pellets soaked for as little as 15 minutes and served up at the consistency of cooked oatmeal are the best thing ever. Might be worth a try.
