    I have eight chicks that are 5 days old. Have a question about keeping my lawn weed free, and not having harmful chemicals to control the weeds. I like to keep my lawn looking nice, but am afraid I won't be able to controlnweeds if they come up. Chicks will be in a run, but they will free range when we are home. Any advice? Thanks.

    pick the dandelion greens as they are young and small. They taste wonderful in salads, and my rabbits love them almost as much as we do. We prefer to send the younger kids out with big bowls....

    There is organic weed contol that you can buy, my city has banned herbicides. My lawn had been and most likely will remain just weeds;) lawns made of weeds cost less due to less watering and the bonus is they it green all summer:)

    Most turf grass has a specific niche, if it's too hot, too cold, too dry, etc. it will wilt and look bad. Weeds on the other hand, there is a different one for each niche, so something is always green lol
