I've discovered a Facebook Group titled Tree Hay. There's a good discussion on the Regarians Facebook page re: pollarding trees to feed animals. Take a look at this YouTube video too.

This article from the University of Kentucky compares feed values and limitations of various grains.
Grains are the main ingredient used in poultry diets to supply energy. A variety of different grains have been used, based primarily on the location. Corn is more commonly used most of the United States while wheat and barley are more common in Canada and parts of Europe. Sorghum is often used in the southern states as well as Africa.
