We've got a half acre lot and I'd like to have a chicken tractor in the backyard with 3-5 chickens. Our yard is fenced and I plan to let the chickens free range around some as well as be in the tractor run. How much chicken poop can I expect to have on the grass after the tractor has been in one place for a while? Or maybe a better question is How often should I move the tractor so that there won't be a ton of chicken poop in one spot? I just want to make sure my little kids can still run around and play in the yard without getting all chicken poopy, if possible. Its not like that the park with the Canada geese poop everywhere, right??
