Experiment 2

So I am attempting another idea I saw on a site I follow on Facebook.

Basically you build a frame and cover it with wire. Then you put grass seed under it and let it grow up through the screen and the chickens can eat it but not tear it up and have it completely gone. First I shut the chickens in so they didn’t eat the seed as I scattered it.

So while cleaning out the barn this spring, I found the frame with wire already on it! How perfect is this!

Under all the cobwebs, is the grass seed. We have had a couple showers the last couple days, so I am hoping it will grow.

It’s not only growing, but the chickens love it and can’t tear it up! I think I am going to build a couple more for them.
