Our chickens free range in our orchard all year, during the summer they have a lot of forage but we do supplement. We are doing our best to wean ourselves off of store bought chicken feed and have a long way to go with 60 chickens. If need be we can reduce the flock pretty fast.
We are growing pumpkins, sunflowers and Hopi blue corn for the girls. Pumpkins store pretty well and they love them. The sunflowers are doubling as bee food right now but should store great as well. The Hopi Blue corn makes a wonderful cornmeal and is high in protein, the girls will have to fight us for it.
Sure would love to hear what other folks are thinking and planting!
