Our old hens are getting tired of being confined because of winter. I'm just curious as to what kind of greens / veggies do the rest of you feed your chickens during the winter? Ours seem to relish anything along the line of lettuce, spinach, even a pile of alfafa hay that they can sort through. I understand oat sprouts are their favorite, but I have not gone to the trouble of trying to get any started. Thanks everyone.

Here's a link to one our setting hens....

My chickens LOVE peas! They are not too fond of lettuce, but I give them that when I have it.

Most anything green and leafy. Mine will about crawl up my pantleg after lettuce this time of year.

My laying hens get most all non-meat kitchen scraps.

Is that a Buff Orpington? She is pretty, and her adopted baby too! I have 5 buffs just over a month old. Love them. I always have collards on hand for the iguana, and the finches like it diced up. I dice up some and put it in there for them, they seem to like it. :)

Yes, we have Buff Orpingtons. The one pictured hatched out the baby Saddle Back Pomeranin goose, which grew up to be a big baby!

Kelly, I've been right busy lately so I haven't checked in as often as I'd like, so I might have missed it. But, I thought you had six little cheeps........gfp
