If you have a tiller you can break up a spot of land about 10x 10 foot. Take several hands full of chicken scratch and toss it into your tilled area, wet it down and watch it grow until tops form. Cut tops off and store in dry place. By the end of July you should have enough food to last your chickens through the winter. Best to plant in the early spring after temps warm up. You may want to grow some kind of greens at the same time. Chickens love mustard greens.
