Growing grains for chicken feed
year, we've decided to start growing some of the grain for our
chickens' feed. We'll be starting small to figure out what works
well on the backyard scale, first trying hulless oats, buckwheat,
amaranth, and quinoa, and then probably expanding out in later years to
include wheat, field corn, rye, barley, and millet. In the long
run, we'd like to grow all of our own chicken feed, which is estimated
to be about a bushel of grain per chicken per year.
