Great for Chickens 

Because we live on a farm we naturally have chickens to supply us with eggs. Our chickens prefer to eat wheatgrass over processed pellets any time. Even tho our chickens are free range and roam around the farm during the day they will always run from far and wide to eat the wheatgrass. They recognize the tray its grown in and when they see it they forget what they are eating and run straight for whoever is holding the tray. I notice after a couple of days of feeding them wheatgrass the egg production goes up around 30%. Pretty impressive.

You will also notice that when you feed your chickens wheatgrass the yolks will become a deep golden yellow colour. This is due to the dense nutrition of the wheatgrass.

Recent studies have shown that the diet of the chicken reflects on the nutritional quality of the egg. If the chickens are fed a nutrient rich diet the eggs will have a higher nutritional value and will contain more of the nutrients eaten by the chicken. So by feeding your chickens power packed nutritional wheatgrass not only do they benefit but you will benefit to. WIN WIN i say.
