Feeding More Wheat and Wheat Products Part 1

This time of year when hens are laying their last round and chicks are weaning, I like to greatly increase the wheat products in the diet.

Farmers or health food store sell whole wheat. I soak the wheat 8 hours and then put it in a strainer and sprout it till I can barely see new sprouts coming to increase its sweetness and then cover with water and cook in a rice cooker about 20 minutes till done. It is either fed after processing in a food processor with added polenta or corn meal or just as it is after cooking. So which do the weaning Columbus like best?

24 hours later barely a trace of the processed wheat with polenta remained in their dish.

How about using golden couscous instead of wheat seed?
