    Hi there folks..
    Thought I would share the greens feeder we made up for the girls a while back.. Is a very basic wire panel arrangement that allows wheat greens to grow up through the wire so the girls have access to greens in their yard..

    The feeder has been in there for 18 months & so far we have seen no damage to the beaks as some folks suggested we would get.. No fertiliser is needed & the sprouts always grow very quickly..

    Cheers all & hope that gives folks a few ideas..
