Feeding dandelions to the chickens
The early start to spring has been great for plants such as dandelions and dock. They have been growing strongly since early March. These green leaves are a great food source for the hens. It takes only a few minutes to fill a carrier bag to take back to the allotment. Fresh food and it's free! The more we can feed them free foraged food, the less we need to buy in.
