    ok so July 2011 Pedro was born. that's my Rooster. well i got really attached to him so i got him some women and they like the plants better than the seeds of their chicken food.
    it also seems to keep them healthier.

    So now i grow most of my own food and their food too. well now this plant keeps showing up in my little green houses where i plant their food and i dont know what it is. but they will gulp it down in a heat beat. so does anyone know what this is

    Its some type of snow pea. I have peas that looks just like that. They are the flat type of peas you find in the supermarket.
