My backyard has the standard fescue grass that everyone around here grows. The chooks free range and I've noticed that they eat a lot of grass. When I was at the feed store the other day, I noticed bulk bins with all different kinds of seeds, including alfalfa and brome. So I got to thinking - maybe I should get a pound of one or the other (or both?) and overseed my fescue a little and just see what happens. If the girls like the brome, they'll eat it. If they don't it will be mown before it grows long enough to be baled anyway, so what do I have to lose? Has anyone tried this? Can you see a downside that I'm not seeing?
