Homemade Fermented Chicken Feed

When it comes to our chicken feed we are always experimenting with different things. I understand that different types of feed have different benefits, for example the homemade organic chicken feed recipe and the homemade chicken scratch recipe for your chickens. Today we are going to look at making homemade fermented chicken feed.

So why on earth would you even consider fermenting the feed in the first place? The first advantage is that it doubles your chicken feed because the water expands the feed, so you use less each time. The second benefit is probiotics, ordinary feed does not have these active in it.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

You will need to ferment each type of feed in its own plastic buckets. Take one of the buckets, drill a bunch of holes on the bottom using the drill. Then fill the bottom bucket with some water, and sit the bucket with holes into the bottom one. Add feed for enough to feed your chickens for one day into the top bucket.

Cover the feed with enough water for it to ferment for at least 3 days. Ideally you want three sets of buckets to allow the system to run for 3 days. You empty one set every single day or night, then you refill it so that it is ready within 72 hours. The first day you can use overnight soaked feed, but the more days the more probiotics.
