I saw this article about feeding acorns to chickens. http://livingthefrugallife.blogspot.com/2010/10/acorns-as-chicken-feed-revisited.html You collect free acorns that have fallen from oak trees and store them for winter feed. The example in the article used a denim bag to place some acorns in and then the acorns were smashed with a hammer. Simple. The article mentioned that a study found that up to half of a chicken's feed could be from acorns. Has anyone fed acorns through the winter to his or her chickens? Is it a good feed? How did it affect laying?
