Growing Fodder for Chicken Feed – Day 3

You can follow our family on youtube on our many foster-adopt homeschooling adventures

Day 3 - Grown Chicken Fodder from barley, krisandlarry.comWe woke up this morning to a bit of a change on our barley. They have begun to sprout over night and we can start to see little white root coming out of some of them.

We did have some fruit flies on the trays this morning. Made a home-made fruit fly trap (jar with a funnel and a 1/2 of  a tomato inside of it.) And we will be putting the seeds outside for a while today.

Our process today is simple. Dump the soaking barley into it’s new tray and shift all of the trays over one. We watered day 2 and day 3 with a cup of water each and with the drain water, I watered my herbs outside.





Here is a photo of 2 trays of sprout seeds side by side. We can’t wait for day 10 to start giving them to our hens!
