gruel and potatoes makes a valuable feeding for pigs. Chickweed makes a good feeding for pigs too but it is not boiled, just cut up fine and dressed with gruel. Nettles when boiled and mixed with oaten meal gruel are the best feeding for young turkeys or hens.
Dandelion should be given to young turkeys to keep them healthy and free from liver trouble.
