How do you plan on feeding this grass to your chickens???
I provide Hay, and Lawn Grass Clippings to my chickens in their run area. They scratch thru it constantly. I do not see them actually eating long strands/blades of grass. They do eat fresh grass blades out of my growing lawn. They nibble small/short pieces that they bite off themselves.
I have read a few posts where chickens consumed long strands of grass and it resulted in Impacted crop. A few ended up way worse. :hit
If you intend to provide your grass as part of the chickens feed, I suggest you chop up or grind up so there are no long strands. Make sure that they also have grit, or at least access to natural earth grit available.
WISHING YOU BEST,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, and :welcome
