Started a 'Dead Simply' Fodder systems last night. I am working off of the video/post that Jack Spirko made at Brink of Freedom web site. The chickens like having fresh veggies/leafy greens and fodder is a cheap way to get them that

'Dead Simple' Fodder system
I went to the local Winco and bought 6 2 gallon buckets. I also picked up a lb or so of: mung bean, black sunflower, oats, and wheat seeds. I soaked the mung bean seeds last night and will start wheat seeds tonight. I want to see which sprouts best and which the chickens like the best since I am having issues with them and store bought feeds.
I bought a poultry grain mix from Patriot Farm and Feed, they don’t seem to like it much. Or they are to set in their ways to try something different. Next I bought some layer pellets from the local store, they eat that a little, maybe I should have bought crumble.
They also do not want to use the chicken nipple waterers I set up, so I put a pan with water in it for them. Darn birds..
But I finished the chicken coop. Might have to modify it as needed.
