And really, what difference does it make? Except that my chicken yard has lots of it, and the chicks are eating it like candy.
Does anyone know of a reason I should pull it up so the chicks can't get to it?
I read that Black Medic is a source of protein, but, still...

The flowers of Hop clover are yellow, almost pea-like. A single round to oval flower head rises from the leaf axil on a short stalk. they are so pretty.

I didn't even remember starting this thread, then finally remembered what the chicken yard looked like after there were no chickens in it for a couple of years. Putting the little chicks out there, with knee high "weeds" I was a little apprehensive. But they ate them all, and now there isn't a single green sprout in their yard.

Now, a year later, this convo is moot. 🤪
