Im thinking about planting my whole chicken yard in this plant. Anyone have any expirence with it? The seeds descritption is..... Japanese millet is a great planting for game birds. It is well known for it's utilization by ducks, but it is also one of the best for dove, turkey, quail, pheasants, and songbirds. Japanese millet out produces all other millet producing tons of seed per acre. This crop will thrive in a wet area but will also do well on well drained uplands with regular rainfall. It also handles acidic soils fairly well. Sounds like a good plant to me. To cut back on this high rising feed costs!
