    I have discovered that when I mow the lawn...if I drop a big pile of clippings on the run floor...the gals go nuts and consume it all......

    Mine love it too...Its like a mad house the sec the grass hits the ground. LOL and they LOVE when I rake up the floor. They dig thru it while I rake and find all kinds of goodies.

    I have switched to grass clipping instead of straw. They seem to especially love violet leaves. It is the only seed, leaf, green that they will eat out of your hand.
     
  4. I put about half my grass clippings in the run. The pullets will dig through it, scratch it about and root around...Oh Yeah, they will also eat pleanty of it.
