We're experimenting with growing our own fodder to reduce the cost of chicken feed, but I am having the hardest time trying to figure out how much I should grow for our 6 young girls!! We bought 6 small bins and drilled holes in the bottom. Right now I am soaking 2 cups of whole barley in mason jars with water and a splash of apple cider vinegar. So I have a few questions. 1. How much fodder should I grow for 6 hens? 2. How much fodder will 2 cups or dry barley yield in fodder approx? 3. Since fodder is more of a supplement, how much laying mash should I provide in addition per day? 4. How much light should I give the growing fodder? 5. Does ACV really stunt the growth of fodder? 6. Others soak with a splash of bleach or peroxide, is that harmful to the girls? Any other advice or answers to my questions is very much appreciated!! BTW we have 2 White Leghorns, 3 Ameraucana's, and 1 Rhode Island Red. 5 of them just turned a year old this month, 2/2017 and our RIR will be 1 year in 4/2017.
