It contains so many kinds of chicken (and human) forage such as Chicory, Endive, Millet, Sunflowers, Mustard Greens, Sorghum, Lettuce and so many more herbs and plants that chickens love!

Grow Notes
If you have chooks or any kind of birds they will love this! Just like you can grow a nursery flat (those flat containers they put the punnets in) or a shallow tub or any container with salad greens for yourself and your family, you can also grow a portable forage bed for your birds and small animals!

And if you have the space, you can also plant this blend in an open area of your garden. To keep the plants going, only let the chickens “mow” it half way down and then move them out to let it regrow. You can keep rotating them through the “pasture” for an entire season with minimal reseeding!

Sow
No matter what container you choose, simply fill it with potting soil and pat down lightly. Sprinkle some of the forage blend seed over the soil. Cover with a thin layer of additional soil and gently water in.

Keep soil moist not wet until germination.

Germination
4- 7 days at 10-15°C

Maturity
10-20 days. You don’t need to grow them right to the end, just to the new leaf stage and each time they get eaten down they will re-grow if not completely devoured. If they were simply re-pack your soil and plant your container again.
