I know I’ve mentioned this, but I love our eggs -I love our chickens too, but not like I love our eggs. Weird, huh? I love being able to go out and collect eggs and then turn it into some delicious meal for my family. I love that we feed our chickens a super, healthy diet and in turn, have super, healthy eggs. I love that when you crack the egg you see that vibrant yellow color, and when you eat our eggs they really taste like eggs.
One thing that we started doing was growing wheat grass for our chickens. We always have tons of weeds around and leftover veggies in the garden, but I read somewhere about how great wheat grass is so we started growing it. I buy wheat berries in bulk from our grocery store and just plant them and water them and that’s it. We walk out to the garden and grab a big handful and yank it up – roots and all and toss it into the chickens. If they are lucky they may end up with a tasty bug or two. They love it and it not only saves money on the cost of feed it makes for healthier eggs.
