We finally fenced in our 5 chickens in the side yard. They have finished our lawn, with the aid of a dry year. They are fed a whole grain diet, with plenty of fruit, vege and diary treats and commercial feed free choice. They dun really scratch the lawn as there are plenty dirt to scratch else where. But no matter how well they are fed, they always eat salad bar on the lawn. Does anyone else notice this? That chickens absolutely love grass! (not grass clippings). Ours are fenced off the lawn for the time being, until our lawn recovers. I really need some ideas as to how to rotate them on grass. Is it possible to grow grass faster than they can eat? We have 5 chickens and a small patch.
