Hello I'm new to the forums and new to chickens but I've received TONS of info scouring the forums before even signing up! You guys are awesome.
I finally built a coop, penned in a run and got my first chickens and things are going great. My question is this: The penned in run is starting to get a little scatty in grass near the coop (where they scratch the most). I also noticed they like to munch on the grass a bit. Is there a fast growing grass seed I could scatter in the run so it doesn't turn into a large dirt patch in a few months? Run is about 70 ft x20 ft for 24 (eventually) chickens. Should I extend the run? I could make it out to 100ft before hitting the property line.
Thanks for your help!
