Unlock the Power of Sprouted Wheatgrass:

During the sprouting process, the seeds activate and enhance their enzymes to levels far surpassing those found in raw seeds or mature plants. Studies reveal that germinated seeds (sprouts) can contain up to 4,000 times the concentration of enzymes and antioxidants compared to unsprouted seeds!

Moreover, sprouts from grains, legumes, nuts, beans, and seeds are packed with increased protein, vitamins, minerals, and accessible fiber compared to their seed form. What’s more, the proteins in sprouts may be easier to digest, as the sprouting process reduces anti-nutrients by up to 87%, enhancing nutrient absorption in the body.

Multiseed Refill Kit and Wheatgrass Refill Kits also available.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How often should I feed wheatgrass to my chickens?

Wheatgrass can be fed to chickens daily as part of a balanced diet. It’s a nutrient-rich food source, but it should complement their primary feed, grains, and other green vegetables. A small tray of wheatgrass can serve a few chickens, ensuring each bird gets a few pecks.

2. How can I ensure my wheatgrass grows successfully in the kit?

For successful growth, ensure your wheatgrass has adequate light, water, and ventilation. Place the kit in an area that receives plenty of indirect sunlight, water it enough to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, and make sure it’s in a well-ventilated space to prevent mould growth.

3. What should I do if my wheatgrass starts growing mold?

Mould growth can occur if the growing environment is too damp and lacks proper air circulation. If you notice mould, improve airflow around your wheatgrass and reduce watering frequency. In severe cases, it’s best to start over with fresh seeds and soil to prevent health issues in your chickens.

4. Can I grow wheatgrass outside?

Yes, wheatgrass can be grown outdoors in suitable climates. It prefers a sunny spot and well-draining soil. However, growing it in trays indoors or in a greenhouse can provide more control over the environment, especially in regions with variable weather.

5. How long does it take for wheatgrass to be ready for my chickens?

Wheatgrass typically takes 7-10 days from seeding to reach a height suitable for feeding to chickens.

6. Can feeding my chickens wheatgrass improve their egg quality?

Yes, wheatgrass can contribute to improved egg quality. Its high nutrient content, especially in vitamins and minerals, can lead to healthier hens that produce eggs with richer yolks and stronger shells.

7. Do I need to introduce wheatgrass gradually into my chickens’ diet?

As with any new food, it’s a good idea to introduce wheatgrass gradually into your chickens’ diet. This allows their digestive systems to adjust and helps you monitor for any adverse reactions, although they are rare with wheatgrass.

    We purchased this wheatgrass kit to grow with the children in our kindergarten setting as a treat for our 3 chooks. We followed the easy instructions and had great success – growing a luscious bed of wheatgrass in no time at all! With plenty of seeds and coir left over, we will be growing green treats for some time to come! The chooks also loved the bonus bugs you sent as as a kind little gift. Thank you 😊
