1. Fodder grows into large grasses from a tiny amount of grain and the chickens eat the roots and all.
This saves me money.
2. Fodder is healthy for the chickens. I eat the eggs, so I want healthy chickens.
3. The chickens love the fodder.
4. Fodder can be grown year round, even when snow is on the ground.
5. My egg production has increased. I contribute some of it to the addition of fodder. It may only be one egg a day, but that could be significant for someone with a large operation. I only have 10 hens. Note: I have taken into consideration that the weather is nicer, even though it snowed one day last week, the sun shines longer each day, and the girls are all egg producers. I was only getting 4 eggs a day last month. I get 7 and 8 eggs a day now.
Thank you for viewing. Let me know how you grow fodder if you are growing it, or if you have future fodder plans.
I hope you and yours are spiritually uplifted this Holy weekend! Dawnie
