A friend gave me a bag of barley seed and I've had great luck sprouting fodder for my six hens (as a snack.) Someone had given her the 50# bag so she couldn't direct me where to buy more seed locally. When I called around today the only feed store that carried barley had both barley seed and malt (or malted) barley seed. She suggested the malt for fodder. Difference in price $2/bag. Can anyone explain the difference? I've had great luck with just regular barley seed so don't know if I should try the malt barley. TIA for any advice.
