    This is so interesting! I never knew there was a wheatgrass tradition with Christmas, I may have to try it this year if I can get the things in time!

    As our chickens are cooped up in the winter, the best way they can eat green stuff which is so healthy for them is to grow wheatgrass in a tower. I use 2 shoe racks one on top of each other, that makes 8 trays. On each shelf, I place an aluminum grilling tray. Under the whole thing, between the legs of the shoe shelves, a place a catchment basin so I can empty the extra water each day. Soak enough wheat to fill a tray, place it on the bottom shelf and water your first tray. The next day, place the second tray over the first and water. Repeat. each day until all full. The bottom tray can now be given to your chickens. Wash it and repeat all winter. Chickens make much better use of sprouted grain than dry grain. I have not had as much muck with oats or rye: They tend to develop mold sometimes, or go gooey.
