Growing legumes is a viable option
You don’t need acres upon acres of land to grow a bit of legumes for your chickens. At Warner Brother’s Seed Company, we have plenty of seeds to start you off in the right direction.
Legumes are great for chickens
Legumes such as peas and broad, French and runner beans are particularly beneficial, being high in protein and popular with chickens. It is best to dry them and then mince or grind them before adding them to the feed.
Plus, during the winter, feeding sprouted seeds provides another excellent source of protein for your chickens!
