    I have a large wild blackberry bush that I harvest for jam every fall. I remove the seeds and throw them away.

    I have a few chickens, and I am wondering if I fed the seeds to the chickens (free range), will the grit in their crops break down the seeds to a) give them nutrition, and b) enough so they aren't pooped out in a form that will sprout.

    Any ideas?
