Johnson grass seeds

We have the misfortune of having Johnson grass naturalized along
roadsides in our area. I succeeded in killing out a small patch in my
chicken yard by persistent digging and shading with black plastic. Along
the road, we have several larger patches. I cut the flowers and seed
heads off the patches upwind from our garden area before I cut the stalks
near the ground to make sure they don't re-bloom again this summer. Now
I have a pillow case of flowers and seeds and there is plenty more
I don't want to chance putting this stuff in my compost but hate
to send biodegradeable material to the landfill. I assume it would make
good chicken feed IF I can make sure any stray seeds won't sprout. I
plan to let it dry and then put it into the solar oven on a nice sunny
day to bake it. (Or maybe even put it into our propane oven sometime when
I'm making biscuits or cookies.) Does anyone out there know how high a
temperature for how long would make sure NONE of it is left viable?
If this turns out to be reasonably easy to accomplish, I might
make it a point to harvest the rest of the seeds on our property for
"free" chicken feed rather than take up garden space growing corn and
Hope someone can help.
