Thanks so much! We are in fall now in Ca., cooler temps, but sunny still. If we can stretch this out for a week, then, it will take away the hurried need for dealing with it in winter, which would really be good.
The grains seem to be barley and wheat with occasional hops. Hops seems from my research to be fine for chickens, but not good for other animals. We are supplementing other feeds, plus pumpkin chipper slaw right now- which they really like.
