I'm still a very new chickenista but when I started pulling a little grass for my baby chicks to eat, I saw how much they loved it. I have been giving it to them ever since because they have not always had access to it in the pens that I kept them in. I know that with my new large pen for them, there will be grass for a while but with time and also the winter season, it will all be gone. I did a couple of experiments with our grass clippings and I think they will work. First, after realizing that the grass dries out and becomes useless very quickly, I decided to store some in the refrigerator as you would any leafy veggy. It kept very well (over a week at least), and I just threw it on top of their shavings after they had eaten some from my hand, and it is gone in no time. Well, I took this one step further and decided to try freezing it for the winter months as a treat and guess what??.........it worked. Now I have a freezer loaded with about 10 ziplock bags of grass clippings.........no food anymore........just grass clippings!! Maybe this has been discussed somewhere else in the forum, but since I haven't seen it, I thought I would throw it out there. I'm gathering the clippings now before the leaves start falling and the clippings get a lot of dried leaves in them. Hope this will be helpful to other people as I am thrilled that I will have clippings for them over the winter. There is one serious problem........I am running out of freezer space between clippings and frozen bottles of water to help beat the heat. Oh well, chickens first!
