Are you constantly pestered with an endless supply of garden weeds? Why turn those pesky weeds into something delicious like eggs!

For this project you will need:

- a source of weeds from a pesticide/herbicide free garden
- a bucket for collecting pulled weeds
- a flock of hungry chickens
- a chicken house with nesting boxes, a roost, and a chicken exercise yard
- an egg carton

Step 1: Gathering the Weeds

First pull some weeds from your garden and put them into a convenient container. I found a spot with lots of chick week, one of the favorites of our chickens!

(Although its hard to tell which is a favorite since they gobble down anything placed in the chicken yard.)
Hilarious title! Love your twist.
When I was a child (in pleistocene) my mother taught me to give purslane (spanish verdolaga) to chickens, they fought for eat it.
Green egg layers! Awesome! Love the information! Your chickens look so pretty! Thanks for sharing and have a splendorous day! <br>sunshiine
