Weeding the Easy Way – Let Chickens Do It


I do a lot of container gardening, and every year my containers sprout tons of annoying weeds before I have a chance to plant them up. I was looking at the mess in dismay until I remembered I had some girls who would be happy to weed for me. The chickens!

Now I just dump my containers in the pen and by the next day they are completely weed-free and have usually also been tilled quite nicely. Is there anything chickens can’t do?
