Our chickens don't get to range at all due to hawks, and other animals, but as I was out pulling weeds for the billioneth time, wishing I wasn't to chicken to handle chickens, , I thought, "hey, my birds might like some weeds tossed to them." Can they have roots and all? If I wasn't a scaredy cat, I'd work on a tractor for them to range. I'll worm a hook, i won't touch a live fish. I'll hatch eggs all day long, I can't touch a chick on my own. They are so squishy, I'm scared I would squeeze it to death.
