Prebiotics and probiotics the farmers new found love and hope of combatting bacterial infections and surmounting the dangers of superbug (bacterial resistance) are known to be products of fermentation. Trials report from fermenting feeds of chicks for two days before feeding indicates that growth and health performance of the birds on fermented feeds show significant better performance than those placed on same commercial feeds as commercially presented. Improvement in both health, growth and feed conversion rate performance of chicks by fermenting the feed are of interest and important to farmers not only in cost saving but also in control of drug resistance in commercial flocks.
