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.)
Step 2: Feed the Chickens the Weeds
Open up the feeding hatch of your chicken coop or yard, toss in the yard, and observe the feeding frenzy that ensues.
(The one with the fluffy white head is our rooster.)
Step 3: Gathering the Eggs
While the chickens are distracted by the yummy greens you have just served, go into the chicken house and gather the eggs from the nesting boxes.
