Like Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, I'm now eaten up from nose-to-tail with curiosity.I feed crumble. As an oatmeal-like consistency wet mash.
How far in advance of feeding do you mix the pellet or crumble with water before feeding?How much do you mix to avoid waste or spoilage? Is fermenting necessary or can mash go straight to the feeder? What kind of feeder do you use for mash? How long do you leave it in the run before removing (I'm thinking fly attractant, dirt & manure accumulation, and/or spoilage if left too long)? Is eight weeks too soon to offer mash?
I'm intrigued for a lot of reasons, but if mash allows for better controlling wastage, it sounds worth trying.
