I have to move my run and coop because of a nasty neighbor and I am wondering if anyone has had their chickens over their septic fields. I found some older posts, but I'd like some recent input. Specifically wondering if eating the grass/soil will make them sick or make their eggs not suitable for us to eat? Or will all their digging and scratching ruin the fields? I was planning on making part of the run sand with gravel base to help keep it dry, so I guess I can put that area adjacent to the actual fields and let the end of the run extend over the fields so they have access to grass and bugs etc.. The area is huge and seems like a tremendous waste of space. We have never had an issue with seepage, the field is very dry. I am even able to see the actual lines in the summer. I guess it gets pretty hot down in there and some times when it is super dry and hot the grass browns in 3 very long paths. That is where they are ....right?? I need to get on this ASAP. thanks!
