    Hi Everyone!

    I'm starting my first flock this spring and a new to BYC. We're doing a native prairie restoration to a large part of our property along with a lot of other people in the area, restoring native wildflowers, pollinator and butterfly plants, and grasses that are disappearing in Minnesota. Do we need to be careful of any specific plants with chickens? I do want to add some chicken favorites, too. Millet and flax are good ones, right?

    Thank you!

    Just plant away. They'll eat what they want, and destroy the stuff they don't want to eat.
