Our cattle pastures are looking better and better as the years pass, so we figured that chickens would like to get a piece of the action too.
One of the special things we grow is lucerne (or alfalfa or luzerne) and it turns out that chickens love lucerne.
They are all out browsing every day. Not only do they scratch in the dirt and eat the bugs but they eat the lucerne leaves.
In a similar way to pastured beef, the rich and varied diet of the chicken adds to its flavor. But still there are chickens who think the lucerne is greener on the other side of the fence.
