I would really love to have a root cellar that I could store a lot of the fall crops for my family & for the birds.
For the straight alfalfa, 1 bale has about 15 3" "flakes" For 15 hens, I usually throw a flake every couple weeks. They love it and it's so easy. Our hay is HIGH$$, costs about $1.00 a flake.
