Our Cluckin’ Good Organic Sprouting Barley is Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Organic, and a great choice for sprouting. We use Pacific Northwest grown whole grains from Certified Organic farms throughout the region. Sourced as close to our mill as possible, barley is one of the main ingredients in most all Scratch and Peck Feeds! You can provide this as a separate feed item as a scratch or additional treat.
Feed Cluckin’ Good Organic Sprouting Barley from your hand or scatter on the ground. Try sprouting to gain full nutritional value. Dry whole barley is a sweet treat for animals. Sprouting barley activates enzymes and releases the grain’s Vitamin A, Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, essential minerals, and carbohydrates, as well as a boost in protein. Barley is one of the easiest and fastest whole grains to sprout. Always offer plenty of fresh water, plus free choice, appropriately sized Cluckin’ Good Poultry Grit for chickens and ducks.
All of our animal feeds are formulated as complete rations. Additional supplementation of grains is not necessary for animals’ diets, but they are certainly enjoyed!
The high quality, uncracked state of our Cluckin’ Good Organic Sprouting Barley makes them great for sprouting. The practice of sprouting grains and legumes has been around for centuries — offering dense nutrition and easily digestible energy for poultry and livestock. Soaking whole grains and legumes removes the protective outer coating, making it more digestible and releasing minerals and proteins. Visit our blog for instructions on how to sprout.
Disclaimer: Although our whole grains are an excellent choice for sprouting, we cannot guarantee 100% viability.
What is the shelf life of Cluckin' Good Organic Sprouting Barley?
Dry whole grains are considered dormant until exposed to enough water to fully absorb and soften the shell for sprouting. We recommend a one year shelf-life of our whole grains if left in their natural state.
