Has anyone ever hung goldenrod or other herbs (weeds) in their coops?

Someone told me they hang goldenrod, and any plants that have seeds or leaves still attached in their coops in the winter for the girls it pick at. They were having trouble with some pecking others and doing this stopped that. Also it's good, extra free feed.

If you have done something like this what do you hang?

Do you use fresh herbs?

    I haven't tried it but I have read that folks hang heads of cabbage, turnips, mangles etc for the birds. The one warning I have read is that sometimes the chickens get tangled in the rope or twine, in one sad story the chicken died, so don't leave them unsupervised for an extended time. Otherwise they enjoy the extra food and the activity.
