This website inspired me to give it a go! http://www.backyardnature.net/simple/alf-spr.htm Looks simple enough, found alfalfa seeds at the feedstore today ($3 a pound but a little goes a long way) and if all goes well, in a week I should have a nice bunch of crunchy greens to give to the flock! Poor things haven't free-ranged in 2 months thanks to the snow, and will likely not see any greens until April... I hope it works! Anyone else tried this before?
