anyone know if chickens will eat wild mint. our pastures are full of it and none of our sheep or goats will touch the stuff. thanks

sorry I don't know the answer, but I would love to know as mint grows like a weed. I make frames to start plants in the run, then I move the frame fro them to eat the started plants. But mint is so invasive maybe I could just sow it around my coop and perches in the run and have it grow with out a frame over it? I have wondered this every spring when I purchase my seeds.

I only grow mint in containers, to keep it from taking over the world! I haven't noticed my chickens ever taking much of an interest in it.

one thing for sure - it is invasive. spreads everywhere choking out everything. and like i said the goats won't touch it and i sure would like to know if i could use chickens to get rid of it.
