How to Grow Fodder for Chickens

It's an easy healthy treat and something your kids can help out with too. Learn how to grow fodder for your birds now.

Fodder is a mat of sprouted seeds that can be used to feed a variety of livestock and small animals, including quail.

There are so many great reasons for sprouting grains into fodder. Too many to list here!

While it’s great for chicken feed, this fodder works as feed for other livestock as well, such as quail.

Soak grain in a bucket of water overnight. Aim for a half-inch depth for each tray.

Drain grains and transfer to trays. Spread evenly. Water each tray morning and night.

The growing fodder is edible at any point, but it usually takes a week or so to have a nice solid block of fodder that you can lift out of each drawer all in one piece.
