Bringing Spring to the Hens

I made a video ages ago (haha it was my first year here! not that long but it feels like it!) about how to sprout grains for giving to chickens during the colder months of the year. It's a great practice, easy to keep up with, and easy to scale. What can I say, I'm a big sucker for giving my animals treats :) Plus it's always bright and refreshing to have green growing things in the house.

You can sprout any type of wheat berries, or try lentils- my girls *love* lentils. Or other grains like rye. Alfalfa seeds are also great.

So if you have chickens, give it a try. It makes a bag of seeds last much longer and with more benefits than if you were to only throw the seeds down as scratch grains.
