    Has anyone used this method to feed their chickens? If so what kinds of fodder should I grow? How much should I give? Is it a good nutrition source or should you always have feed out with the fodder?

    I feed fodder in winter when there's nothing green growing.
    It isn't a complete feed so chicken feed should still be their primary intake.

    I get the best luck from barley but wheat, BOSS, peas and buckwheat work too.
