"We are often asked the question, 'During hot weather flocks, how can I prevent wet litter in the front of my tunnel ventilated houses using evaporative cooling?' Realistically, we have to understand that a good tunnel house
using evaporative cooling just doesn't allow the air to dry the litter as well in the front of the house, so you can't
totally prevent some build-up of moisture in the litter. The good news is there are steps you can take to manage
the problem. However, keeping litter moisture to a minimum and making good use of evaporative cooling for best

Fermenting chicken feed is an easy and inexpensive way to improve the nutritional value of your chickens food, leading to overall better health -- and quality of eggs! It takes very little supplies and time to do. Come learn how!
Prep Time: 5 mins Fermentation Time: 3 d
Large glass jar, mixing bowl, bucket, or other container (BPA-free preferred)
1-2 servings chicken feed of choice
Add enough chicken feed to the container for one or two days servings for your flock.
1: Pour dechlorinated or filtered water over the top of the feed. Add enough so that the feed is fully submerged and has a couple inches of room to expand. (If needed, simply leave a glass of city tap water out at room temperature overnight to allow the chlorine to dissipate.)
2: Cover the top of the container with a loose-fitting lid, plate, or other makeshift lid. It doesn't need to be air tight.
3: Set the container in a location with moderate temperatures for three to four days to ferment (such as out on the counter, in the garage, etc).
4: Check and stir it each day. Add additional water if the feed has absorbed it all.
5: After 3 to 4 days (our chickens prefer day 3) give them the fermented feed. If it hasn't absorbed all of the water, you can either drain it off and discard, or reserve the liquid to jump start a new batch of fermented feed.
6: Repeat as desired, and develop a schedule. Since it takes a few days to ferment, some folks start staggered batches every day (put a date on the container!) in order to have a finished batch of fermented feed available at all times.
