I grew French sorrel this summer and the chickens destroyed it, they loved it so much. One of the other things they love is something I always thought was clover--with a little yellow flower. Imagine my surprise to discover that what I thought was their beloved clover is actually a sorrel, wood sorrel or wild sorrel or something. What I learned is that chickens love sorrel!!
