I have been looking online for this plant. Cannot seem to find it... driving me nuts. Anyone know what it is called? I am in nc. Seems to only grow in spring/summer. I believe it is a weed. Was wondering if I can feed it to chickens or ducks it is all over our yard.

Could you get photos of the entire plant? Also a close-up of the flowers and/or seed heads? How tall is it?

Mulberry weed (Fatoua villosa)

I'm not sure you would want to feed this fast spreading weed to the livestock... as that would only serve to increase the weed... as the seeds passed through the ducks.
