End of fodder test

Well, I got 39oz of fodder to my 10oz of barley. Not quite the 8:1 I have heard about, but 4 times isn’t bad for a first run. There are quite a few grains not sprouted, I would say up to 20 percent or more. Maybe a longer soak or a different container would make a difference. For now hopefully the chickens will enjoy it.


I think they do, of course they always run up to me when I go out there, but it looks like they have been eating the barley.

Fodder – day 1

10 oz barley and 1 qt water. Soaking for 8 hours. I bought the raw, unprocessed (and only partially de-hulled) barley at the feed store for 18 bucks. Now to watch what happens.
