Grains have certain bacteria in them. This depends on the way they are stored, dried or processed. Moisture content of each grain also varies depending on the source or area where they came from.....the weather.....and the way they were dried (processed). If you buy at different times during the keep, you won't have the same quality of grains. This will affect your fowl's digestive system and consequently, their performance. For the real meticulous feeder, what I mean is that you don't want to change the bacterial content in the grains in the middle of the keep and specially during pointing. If for example, you are on your 18th day of conditioning, then you are forced to buy new corn, stress in their digestive system will set in because the microflora in the gut will be greatly affected by the new bacteria. New corn will result to green droppings and you don't want that to happen on fight day.
I would like others to share some inputs in this thread. Remember that no one???? has ever perfected the art of conditioning and I would still have an open mind to learn from other fellow cockers.
