Nutrition will be right in line with typical iron and clay cowpeas.

ok....thats good to hear.....i reckon as long as its new and green then it can't be bad for them.....hopefully they'll get fat off of it and hit our mineral/salt licks hard....im ready to see how they hit it!

and I found out last year that I/C peas are also yummy for people to eat! My wife likes them better than purple hulls and as long as she's doing the picking and shelling, I feel the same way. Actually planted corn and I/C peas in my garden this year.
