My girlfriend and I recent purchased barley that we wanted to sprout to feed to our new (first!) flock. We didn't do enough research and ended up purchasing pearled barley from the store, not that whole barley that you need to buy if you're going to sprout it. Now that I have several bags of pearled barley, can I feed it to my chicks? Raw? Cooked? Side note: the chicks (~2 weeks) are in their brooder but I have been mixing in some grit with their food.
