Hi Healzam,
I don't know about that product.
However, there's a mail order seed company in Queensland that sells a seed mix called Clucker Tucker. :-P This has many types of forage greens. For 4 hens, you could grow several seedling trays, staggered in start timing to have a continuous supply, and give them a tray every few days....... If they are not allowed to completely decimate it, the trays will resprout. It would also be possible to cut the greens with scissors and give it to them as a treat instead of letting them scratch them up. (alternatively, if you have the space, you can just seed the ground and let them forage on half, while the other half re grows...)
I also got some seed mix from our local co-op, (a rye grass, clover, plantain and burdock), which I am using to improve forage areas. Maybe your local produce store has something similar..... Pays to ask around..... :read
