    And they got the plants. Broccoli, kohlrabi, and Brussels sprouts are all in the same family as cabbage, and the leaves and stalks are completely edible. My hens are going nuts for the plants since green things are in short supply right now.

    LOL! They are obviously happy campers! Pretty girls, too.

    I planted a fall batch of lettuces for my girls along with some collards and kale and I've been giving them a small bunch each day to keep them happy. The girls sure do like their greens! [​IMG]

    I sure wouldn't want to be given the job of removing that plant from those hens right then! [​IMG]

    Ha! You should be a goat. If the goat wasnt' tied, she would have played "chicken bowling" and scattered all those hen. Then she'd stand right over the top of the plant and keep it all to herself.
