Why is this a weed and not a desert wildflower emerging?

Is there a weed that smells like mint? I have several bunches growing in my chicken run/yard. I dont know where it came from other than I have tried to grow mint many time and ended up dead, so could be some I tossed and came back to life, but I am not sure.

I hate to kill it and it be the mint I want to grow. Chickens mostly leave it alone for now.
