Plantain and banana tree stalk as chicken feed

Thread Starter 

For those of us chicken nerds in more tropical climates, this might be interesting... I never knew!

I talked to some old timers and they say banana trunks can be used too, after the bananas have been picked and the stem is supposed to cut down anyway!!

Cool! That is very interesting.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
