What We Feed
There are so many different choices of feed for chickens. There are layer pellets, crumble, whole grain, milled grain, organic, non-GMO, etc- enough to make your head spin. We fed what we felt was a great feed, but there was always so much waste. I was having to switch between layer pellets and crumble to try and keep them interested in their feed. I always felt something was lacking in their diet and I knew I needed to make a switch. We decided to switch to Scratch and Pecks Organic Layer. This is whole grain feed that is not short on high quality ingredients.
Well, it was a success!
Why We Ferment Our Feed
I headed to the internet to see what I could to do to try and reduce to cost of feed, minimize the waste, and get a great quality of feed. I had come across several articles about fermenting and was amazed by the health benefits and I was immediately hooked. I will admit, I was nervous about doing it wrong, so it took me a long time to finally take the plunge, but I am so glad I did!
