Choosing cover crops for chickens

Homegrown HumusAlthough it’s really about
gardens more than chickens, I thought I’d let you know about my newest
99 cent ebook,
Humus: Cover Crops in a No-till Garden

I’ve tried several of
these cover crops in our chicken pastures, and oilseed radishes were by
far the chickens’ favorites.  Cover crops that others have
reported chickens eating but which our flock was less keen on included
barley, oats, Austrian winter peas, and annual ryegrass.

I’d be curious to hear
from anyone who’s tried other cover crops and found them palatable to
their poultry.  What do your chickens like to eat?

Our chicken
rounds out the healthy chicken diet with clean water.
