I was wondering if I would be able to grow any grains or something for my chickens during winter? We have a pretty mild climate, but this winter is already colder then it normally is at this time of year. Is there anything I could grow?

You could do some cold weather crops like spinach, kale and chard. Grains probably wouldn't grow over the winter, but you can sprout them indoors for the chickens..they love it and it's really good for 'em :)

Sandhill Preservation has a chicken mix for cool temperatures includes radish,turnips,mustard and other varieties for the birds to forage on. My birds love onions,beets and radish.

Winter cover crops? The nurseries and feed stores should have seeds.
