I bought an organic Omega 3 chicken forage blend (containing flaxseed, buckwheat red clover, millet and a few others). I was going to plant it in dirt and then let the chickens eat it. I am now interested in in sprouting and think that would suit my needs better. The seeds are nitro coated - also organic. I don't even know what that mean and whether or not it would be detrimental to my chickens health. I have tried to sprout some and it looks great. I have not given it to the girls yet. Does anyone know if I can use it for sprouting or not. Also, I planted some in trays of potting soil so if the nitro coated seeds are not good for them they will still be able to get to it while foraging. Any opinions on this? Thanks!
