I am playing around with growing some edible greens for my chickens. We already give the ‘girls’ leafy greens from the veggie garden and one chicken flies over the fence regularly to help herself, but they would still love even more.
My minor brainstorm turned out to be bird seed. I remembered how quickly the seed cleaned out from our budgie’s cage grew (this was when I was quite young). So armed with some bird seed, some trays and a heater pad, this is what has grown in just over two days!
The tray is now outside for the day getting some sunshine and hardening off. It will be a few days before the chickens get given it to eat. Of course the shoots will all be demolished in a few minutes so I will have to get a production line happening.
