I have read several threads about sprouting wheat and feeding it to layers. Two weeks ago I picked up a 50lb bag of uncleaned wheat where I buy my layer feed. It only cost $4.50. I soaked for a day, rinsed the next day, and they started to sprout. I rinse them everyday, as that is what I read should be done, and I never have them sitting around for more than five days(they can become rancid if kept longer). I started feeding them to chickens on the third day. I have several pans started so I have a continuous supply of them. Every morning I give my 8 RIR a 9"x13" pan of them. They absolutely go nuts when I set it in the pen. I can already tell a difference in the size of the eggs. At first I thought the eggs where getting larger because the hens were getting older, but I don't think the size increase would be that quick. The eggs are larger in diameter, not so much in length. I wanted to share this with everyone. I am convinced it works. I also have read that wheat will also boost the imune system. I know it's true for humans, so it should also hold true for chickens as well. Thanks to all that have posted threads on this topic. I hope more people will try this inexpensive method for getting nicer eggs and healthier chickens.
