I posted a youtube video on sprouting... healthier feed at less than half the cost of commercial feed.

To see the video follow the link at


Feeding sprouted grain is a very economical method of supplying green feed to all classes of poultry and rabbits. Fodder, as green feeds are also called, supply nutrients that are easier to absorb for your animals. Dried grains ready for sprouting are convenient to buy and store.

The feed value of the grains change when sprouting happens. When grain begins to sprout and grow there is an increase in vitamin and protein percentage wise. The reason for this is the starch is used to support the new sprout. A grains seed contains complex compounds which are difficult to digest. When they are sprouted they become a more simple compound, which makes them more readily available.
