    Anyone feed their birds, herbs?

    I just tossed my hens a bunch of basil tops I trimmed from my plants, and they went crazy for them.
    Anyone else ?

    Mine love the herb trimmings. We laughingly call them pre-stuffed! (We don't eat them, it's to make them lay)

    Oh yes, I make piles from trimming and weeding in my garden and they all go to the chickens. They do go nuts for those basil tops, and parsley!!! [​IMG]
