    We give ours leftover veggies and also an occasional head of cabbage. As long as they are on a good food you don't need to supplement greens ... but sometimes it's fun to. :)

    It's winter so no grass or weeds here. I do the leftover veggies and pick up some bagged spinach when it's on sale.

    I mix alfalfa pellets in with my layer pellets. They love them and my egg yolks are nice, dark orange color.

    Cabbage is cheap.
    One head a week sems like enough to keep the hens happy and the egg yolks dark.
    But they alo get a lot of cracked corn for calories to keep them warm in the winter.
