I'm overloaded with new starts this year and they're invading my 'new coop space' so i really need to cut them back. I don't know what type they are, but i am sure the previous owner of the property used them for beer making, he was a very self sufficient man, all the way to making his own cow hide seat covers! they grow like weeds (over 20ft tall!), are gorgeous and even more gorgeous when the hops come in, and they REALLY COME IN!! and after asking this wonderful chicken loving online community, i found out that these babies are good for chickens!! Who Knew?? I'm asking $5 for 3 good starts plus whatever shipping is. I can ship flat rate. ETA: I don't have PayPal but will accept Money Orders. These replanted Awesomely for me today, perked up very quickly!
