Fodder: Day 6

Day 6 on the oats- 1 day soaking, 5 days growing. We are getting a nice layer of green shoots. I have one small container of oats that isn't doing as well. I think there was a lack of air circulation in the plastic container I have them in. I'm planning to feed those to the goats this afternoon. 

The wheat is rocking along too and definitely seems quicker to grow. This is only 2 days growth on this stuff. 

I still want to get some barley. I've read it's the easiest to grow. Oats are the hardest. 

I introduced Asher to his new charges today. It took him a minute to understand that Scilla is supposed to be with them, but everyone is getting along now. 


  1. Lookin' good! I'm so horrible! The feed store that sells barley seeds is not on my usual path and my chickens have been penned up a week I'm sure their yolks are getting paler. I need to get this project started :(
    Asher and the goats are cute :)

    1. Your poor hens!
      I gave the girls the spouted oats from the container with too little circulation. That couldn't get enough!
