I've also read good things about it. It helps improve intestinal health and prevent diarhea, coccidiosis etc.

Basically, it involves soaking their feed in water for 3 days. You have to ensure that the feed is well covered by water. Initially it will swell and so you have to keep adding more water. After 3 days you can strain and feed to the birds. It really help in intestinal health because it contains probiotics.

Yes you have to do so once everyday. If you must practice this you have to maintain good hygiene because wetness favors growth of pathogens. So there should be no left over in the feeders. Plastic feeders are better than wooden ones in this case.
