I wanted to share how I fed my chickens fresh greens for free all winter. I grew several large collard green plants in my garden . In late November I dug them up planted them in a large rubber container three to a container and moved them into the plastic enclosed run. Even through the deep freeze the plants lived . The chickens ate fresh green leaves off the plant all winter and they roosted on the large stalks . So turned out to be food and another place for them to jump on . It's March and about 30-50 degrees during the day. The stalks are sprouting new leaves so the girls will get more fresh leaves. I plan to do this again this year . Collards are so easy to grow. I had three large plants for three chickens .so one plant for 1-2 chickens should work. Collards have lots of calcium too so good for egg layers. Mine layed all through the winter one egg a day.
