Is anyone experienced in using Field Peas (or any of its cultivars) as a winter forage crop for chickens, turkeys or ducks? I know that geese readily eat it and it is recognized as a good green feed for dairy cattle, especially in Europe. I have not located any information on the internet as to its usefulness as a feed otherwise. It grows well duiring colder weater and if suitable may be a valuable plant to utilize for poultry since its growing season extends beyond many other vegitation types. I am told that it grows much like a cold hardy pansey. I have seen panseys blooming in Ohio in December and in Atlanta in January. I am thinking this might be a good crop to extend the season of range poultry. Any information would be appreciated.
