    Hi there. I have had chickens before, but do to some miss fortunes they are no longer with me. Now I am at a new place and getting ready to build a new flock. Not sure of any particular breed, I mainly like to mix things up a bit.

    Hi. Welcome to BYC. I have found some very interesting threads on this site including Growing Fodder for Chickens and Fermenting Feeds for Meat Birds. I think there is also another thread for fermenting feed too. My chickens LLOOOVVVVEEE the fermented feed and won't eat their regular ground grain unless they are desperate.

    Fermented feed? As in an alcoholic feed? Are your chickens alcoholics? LOL

    Yes, fermented. That's probably why they like it so much!

    Thanks guys! I am looking forward to getting to know everybody here and having a flock of chickens again. I am also looking into getting some guineas and possibly a few ducks. It's going to be a fun time at the ole homestead over the next couple of months getting an area cleared and coops built.
