Spouting Wheatgrass For The Chickens!

I am so excited that I spouted some wheatgrass for my chickens!
I know this will be great especially for winter.

I searched Pinterest and found several ways.
 I took pictures through the 8~9 day progress.
From soaking overnight to harvest.
The wheat starts to spout very fast!
Look at all those little roots!
I tasted the wheatgrass and it is very refreshing!
I will be making a batch for us to juice with.
The chickens LOVE it!
This is one of their favorite treats …
wheatgrass, corn, dried mealworms & oats!
I have made several batches since I took these first pictures.

Have a Great Day
Thanks Bunches for Visiting!

You are such a good chicken mama! I sprout Mung Beans for my girls..they love those too. I also give them those mealy worms and they just devour those! I love your photos...they are awesome...you are so good at photography!

I used to sprout wheat grass for my cat. He loved it too!

I used to make sprouts...to eat! It's fun to see them grow, too. Enjoy your week! Hugs, Diane

Your chicks are a lucky bunch! Other than the worms, looks mighty delicious.

Thanks for the comments, MJ! It was so nice to hear from you.
