    Give the food a sniff - it may be moldy. Or the recipe may have changed.

    I use poultry layer since duck feed is not available here. And yes, try fermenting it. It is not complicated, just requires a tiny bit of space and planning. I need to get my fermenting set up again.

    If I were you I would get poultry layer. I feel it must be available, if the hog feed is.

    I was just wondering what State you all are located in. I see where people talked about freezes and rain on days our temps were in the 60's. It chilly and raining here today and supposed t have freezing temps and below for the next week or more. The flocks aren't going to be happy about it but they'll live. I am in North Central West Virginia. Like the area but would love to go off grid in Alaska!!!!

    I'm in Texas. I love reading about cold weather in other states[​IMG] but happy we don't have to worry about the added chores it brings or be concerned about our animals.

    Must be nice Ren2014. I am in the part of Texas that has been cold for over a month. Sure the weather keeps teasing us with a 40 degree day but we have been below freezing for going on two weeks now. My birds are dealing a lot better than I am.

    I'm cold today in TX, darn wind. Actually it isn't too bad but I had to go cover all my plants for tonight. It's suppose to be 23 degrees and that is cold enough for me! All the mud/water is going to be really frozen by morning.
