if it was a while ago id dig it all over before you get them so you put any weed killer a foot down or so . maybe water it well before hand to dilute any residual weed down a lot then dig it over . get one chicken at first and see how that goes .

I wouldn't let the chickens eat the plants/weeds with weedkiller on. And don't 'get one chicken' as they are very miserable unless they have at least one friend. Most chicken sellers won't sell just one anyway.

i ment just for a little while so you dont lose lots of them at once . i used to work rearing chickens bye the 100`s of thousands . definatly dont feed them weed killer on the plants lol .
