    Hi Guys,
    I bought a couple of these little tubs of cat grass, add the wheat seeds and long grass was there in under a week. My cats are not touching it....I know they are odd. But I was thinking of using a bigger container and growing it for my chickens so they'll have fresh grass to munch on in the winter.
    I think it would be nutritious.
    Any ideas on why to or not to?

    My chickens spend the majority of their day out in the green wheat field [​IMG] They looove to eat the wheat, I'm sure it's just fine. [​IMG]

    I have a small patch of wheat grass growing in my garden right now and I cut off handfuls to bring to my three chickens. They absolutely love it.
