DH has about 2 acres that he's been thinking of planting with either winter wheat or winter rye, harvesting next year, and then planting with oats. He wants to know which is better for chickens. I can't find a lot of info on feeding rye to chickens, but as a feed I've found rye is susceptible to ergot, a fungus which makes some feed companies leery of using it. Wheat has more protein than rye by about 4% and more starch. Anyone have any suggestions? Right now I'm leaning towards wheat.
