    I have my coop in the back of my business. It is currently barren hard clay area w/ a bunch of weeds. I wanted to put down sod next spring but was concerned the chickens (who have free range of the yard) poop will burn the sod. Does anyone have experience w/ this? Thanks

    Here's the sod we put in several months ago. 15 chickens and two goats free range here all day!

    Poop has not been a problem at all (unless you're barefoot!)
