I have been making my own chicken feed for about one month now. Everybody is laying well and looking good so far. I fully expected to see some diarrhea at first due to the dietary change and have been adding probiotics to the feed daily as well. (Before the new diet, they had been getting probiotics once or twice a week). But after one month, the birds still have diarrhea to some degree. Rarely do they pass a firm solid stool. I am grinding my grains as small as my grain grinder will grind them, nearly to powder with some tiny bits of grain and seed. I add a tiny bit of water at feeding time to keep the powder down and bring all the ingredients together to make a very small crumble form. Also to make it easier for the birds to break down in the intestinal tract. My fiber content is 6.6%. I am unable to get that lower. My birds don't free range and I have been going very light on the treats during this entire experiment so I can monitor all conditions. I keep them on sand in the coop and run, so they have access to tons of stones for the gizzards. Do I have too much fiber in the feed?? Or possibly the feed is not highly digestible? If so, what can I add to make it easier to digest? Thanks so much!
