Introduce your Kuroiler Chicks on grass and leaves at one month

We are now out of brooder and we are one month and two weeks. At one month, begin to introduce your Kuroiler chicks to grass and leaves of certain plants. Amazingly, grass provides approximately one quarter of a chicken’s daily nutrient requirements resulting in them eating less feed. Therefore, you will spend less money paying for feed. Grass is high in protein, iron and vitamins E and C. You may want to go and cut all the grass you can for you flock with this new information.

However, there are some things to be carful of when allowing your flock to eat grass. Make sure it’s not treated with any chemicals or pesticides. Also, if you watch your chickens free range you will notice that they only eat the tops of the grass blade. The reason for this is because if they eat the entire blade, they risk the chance of crop impaction. So when harvesting grass for them, avoid giving them long, thick pieces. Be sure you only feed grass blade pieces no smaller than 1″ and never just grab a handful of grass and throw it to your flock.

Here are weeds and plants to stay away from (Note that most chickens will not eat plants they know are bad for them but it’s still good to be safe): Azalea, Rhododendron, Henbane, Black Nightshade, Buttercup, Clematis, Foxglove, Castor Bean, Irises, Oleander, Vetch, St. John’s Wort, Sweet Pea, Honeysuckle, Privet, Trumpet Vine.
