I just read this article from the homepage: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/composting-with-chickens and wondered if you could rebuild a yard that has been taken over by weeds this way? We have a large area that is infested with crabgrass, and for whatever reason can't even get grass seeds to sprout there after aerating. I'm thinking maybe I could fence it in and put the chickens to work over the winter on it - throw in some hay, leaves, etc. and maybe it would better for planting grass in the spring? What do you think?
