    I am thinking about doing some renovations to my coop/pen. I was wondering how affective the Balfour Method is? And how much it might cost? If you pick no please tell me why.

    I like to rotate my chickens around. I move my fencing a lot. Wear gloves LOL.

    It really helps with reducing their worm burden too I believe.

    Cost all depends on how much fencing you buy.

    My coops are situated so that I can direct the flow of chickens in a couple of directions with a slight change in fencing. I still have them entering the coop in the same place (no multiple pop doors for me because mine are auto openers).

    It allows the grass to regrow. Sometimes I even sow grass seeds. I would have total mud pits out there if I didn't rotate.
