Soaking Chicken Feed

If you’re looking to stretch your chicken feed out longer, you can ferment or soak chicken feed.

Soaked feed is digested easier, your chickens will naturally eat less chicken feed than if you didn’t ferment or soak it.

In the most obvious way, the softened feed is more gentle on the stomach – or in a chicken’s case, their crop and gizzard.

What you need:

– chicken feed – lay pellets – container to hold feed – water – spoon

Measure out your chicken feed, how much they can eat in a day you want to do at a time. They say 1/2 cup of lay pellets for regular-sized chickens.

You want to cover this with water, having about 3 inches above your feed.
