Growing Fodder

for Chickens & Quail

We all like to give our birds a treat now and then, here is something you can make for them easily. 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.

One of the best reasons for sprouting grains into fodder is that it helps stretch your animal feed budget. Fifty pounds of whole grain can be transformed into as much as 300 pounds of fodder simply by sprouting it.

Soak grain in a bucket of water overnight. Cover the grains with about two inches of water. How much grain to soak depends on the size of your trays and how many you’re filling.

You’ll see roots within the first couple of days, followed by greens. The growing fodder is edible at any point.

You can start your trays on different days to keep them growing at different times, keeping your birds in fodder.
