    Does anyone recognize this plant? It grew in my garden, assuming it was in my rabbit food mix. Some type of grain, initially thought it was corn. Wondering if I can feed it to my chickens or rabbit. Thanks!!![​IMG]

    Could be a dwarf sorghum, or a variety of millet. I agree with sorghum. I grew some last year that was 9' tall.
