I use lactofermentation for our chickens. Saves on feed, they like it, and I can use whole grains like corn that are normally served cracked. Pickl-It For Pets — Blog — | Pickl-It Hope the link works. Last night, I wandered onto Parrot Nation website, and stayed up way too late reading about "chop" I make that too...every morning. The PN lady freezes hers. I found no mention of lacto ferments on her site, but those basic veggi chops would make a fine kraut. We make veggi krauts for ourselves (I like Sandor Katz books for that), I never thought of feeding it to the budgies/canary. So, are the Pickl-it people on to something?
