    Hi, I was looking for plants to grow to help offset the cost of feed for my birds. So far I plan to grow pumpkins and sunflowers, possibly corn. they loved the pumpkins I grew last year.Any other suggestions?

    I tend to feed my chickens a little bit of wheat mixed in with corn and sunflower seeds.

    A couple years ago I grew Sugar Snap Peas. I got the peas and the chickens got the leaves and tender vines.
