    Earlier this fall I decided to mow down my front yard and overseed it with a wildlife fall seed mix from the local feed store. It is made for deer, but has lots of things chickens love like alfalfa, white clover, crimson clover, winter peas, etc.


    Here was the yard in September.


    And heres a month later in October.


    Open the flood gates!


    Put the electric predator netting up.

    here's a video of them grazing.
