    But how well does this work with grain mixes [​IMG] I use layer mash, sweet mix, beef chop, cracked corn, whole oats & layer crumbles all in the same fermented mix.

    Shouldn't be much different. You'd probably have to let it ferment for a little longer though.

    Any takers for the two coturnix chicks? $4 for both, Julian, PA. I prefer not having to have a whole brooder setup for just two, lol.

    My DH was getting his haircut today and was told to feed the chickens cracked corn. That they don't need layer mash. What do you think?

    I haven't pulled them from the bator yet, lol. They're pretty easy though. Docile, small (about 10oz full grown), lay an egg per day (14 grams, lol), won't brood their own eggs though. Keep more males than hens though.

    I give cracked corn in ADDITION to layer feed. They need the calcium & extra protein that the layer is fortified with.
