Winter Chicken Garden
Winter Chicken Garden Variety: Arrow Leaf Clover, Oats Saia, Black Rapeseed, Red Clover
This mix is to be grown so that free range and urban chickens can have their own fresh organic greens to graze. This is not a full feed diet and should not supplement their diets. Eating fresh greens is the most natural diet chickens can have.
To sow: broadcast seed in well prepared beds rich in organic matter. Cover seeds with a layer of soil and water regularly. When the seeds germinate, allow then to grow 7-10cm before allowing chickens to graze. Chickens like to forage on greens that are 7-10cm tall. Sow more seeds in a separate patch for succession cropping.
