I am experimenting with growing greens for the hens. In the winter I am concerned tha they will not get the variety they will need, so i am growing trays of grass to trim just the very tips to add to their feed and mustard ,cress, and alphalfa in trays on the window ledge. It also means that on days like today when it is pouring with rain and I don't fancy them digging up my lawn i can feed them some of their favourite,grass. Last night as their bedtime treat I gave them some of my lentils and rice....yummy, they loved it :-)
