Chickens aren't grazers. so it really doesn't matter what you plant.
The amount of greenery they eat is very small compared to seeds and insects.


Rapeseed is just Canola, and is safe to eat, but you'd be better off to just plant Clover or Oats instead of a "Deer" mix

It's all sprouting ,I'm seeing clover and the oats coming up. The clover is from the deer seed. Should have a nice green field for them later this fall and will shut the other field down and lightly till it and sow seed in that pasture. I'm going to go with some winter wheat next time I think.
