    Chickens will eat those right? Our lawn mower doesnt pick up the clippings, and I thought itd be fun for the chickens to poke thru and eat what they wanted from the remains of the mowing... do they like grass clippings?

    Watch the size- no long clippings. Some have had trouble with impacted crops that were full of grass clippings. Read that a few times here on BYC somewhere.

    isent there a risk of sour crop if they eat too many grass cuttings?

    or is that only if their diet is mainly grass??
