    Hi! Fermented feed is when you soak feed for a few days before feeding it so it undergoes the process of lacto-fermentation. Lots of people think that fermented feed cuts down on waste and improves the overall health of chickens. For more information, there are a lot of threads here that may be helpful, and here are some great articles about it as well.
