Feeding the chicken
We can also use the barley sprouts (which we use for the sheep) as a staple diet for our chicken.
We will also feed them Maggots and crickets
Karl Hammer of Vermont Compost has been feeding hundreds, sometimes thousands of chickens without grain for 20 years. His magic? Compost. But, do the chickens still lay? 300 a day! Oh, and he’s got unique donkeys that deliver the eggs and other goods to the customers in town 🙂
