My chickens aren't too keen on it. But I fed them the greens, and not the seed heads.

My goats love the flower heads and the leaves. From what I understand, it takes some frosts for them to die. This is my first year growing them and so far they are still alive and haven't really changed since the flower heads emerged. In a mild climate you might not even have to harvest and store them. You might be able to rotate livestock in and out of patches of amaranth, which I think would grow back during the warmer months. Just a thought.
Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more, it's a tiny ad:
