I understand most of the people here have backyard fowl.
That is less than an acre.
But has anyone grew grain for feed.
Millet,sunflowers,buckwheat,flax or oats.
I have power line easement running though my 10 acres of pines.
This easement can be planted with annual crops.
Anyone know anything about small grain crop being gathered by hand?

Small crops planted and gathered by hand are a pain in the .....
Corn would be the easiest.

Except if this was to be a replacement for commercial feed it wouldn't be enough. Actually the list made wouldn't be a balanced diet either.

If for treats, millet is easy to grow and harvest. You don't have to strip the seeds, just leave them whole and toss to the birds.
