Chick'n Greens: Chick'n Greens™ turns your brooder into a healthy playpen for your chicks! Simply plant the seeds, add your growing container to the brooder and let your chicks peck away at the healthy greens. Remember to be patient, as the shy chicks may wait to get acclimated while the curious chicks dive right in.
Directions: This product is intended for chicks two weeks of age and older. Select a container that will not overcrowd the brooder setting and fill it with moistened dirt. Sprinkle seeds over the surface, cover 1/2 inch deep with additional dirt and water gently. Grasses are ready when the blades are at least a few inches tall (about 10-14 days after the first watering). Place container in brooder and allow pecking for a period of time. Remove Chick'n Greens from brooder, water, and allow re-growing for several days before serving again.
Tips: Keep container of Chick'n Greens moist but drained so that there isn’t any excess water. Be sure to provide a good light source - greens can be grown indoors or outside depending upon your geographical location. For a continued supply of healthy greens, grow multiple containers at a time, one week apart. When the greens no longer grow, discard and start again with a clean container, new seeds, and dirt.
