Natural Chicken Food

Ever since I began keeping the chickens in a pen I have been pulling grass and weeds for them to eat.
They love just about every kind of weed I have given them.
Grass and weeds are plentiful and grown in abundance along the side of the road.
It only takes a few minutes to pick a bucket full and the best part is...it's free!

I wonder if the different weeds would produce different tasting eggs....like wild onions and garlic. Does it affect them? haha....I went down to type in the word verification and the first 5 letters are peeps!!

We got 11 chicks last Saturday. They are cute. But stinky.

You know - I just within the last week or so put a whole wheelbarrel of weeds on the burn pile - I NEVER thought to give them to the chickens - I'll have to remember this!!!
