Hello James

Our chooks love pigeon peas. I'm sure they are a safe, staple food in  many places.We planted them for us, but never quite got into poocessing them. I just semi-crush the dry pods and the chooks do the rest. I feel they might be better food than the bought stuff.


I use pigeon pea as a treat for my chooks  - in the dry pods chooks seem to like picking them out.    Have a look on Feedipedia     for more information about quails and chickens.
