Does anyone grow millet for their chickens? Can you please tell me what fertiliser to use?
Millet will grow well in any normal garden soil. It's a grass, therefore would do best with a high nitrogen (Just my opinion) Be sure to give it time to mature the seed heads. I'm thinking that it takes 90 days, but you'll have to do the homework on that one. Also, you'll have to protect those maturing seed heads from marauding birds. The easiest and cheapest way to grow it is to use some millet from a bag of bird seed, or buy a head of spray millet from a pet store.
