    I'm planning on expanding our yard and redoing the chicken yard, giving them more room. One thing I've noticed is my pathway back and forth becomes unattractive/muddy. Do you think it would be okay to use a pea stone pathway in the chicken yard? Should I be concerned about the chickens trying to eat them? Thanks.

    I bet the chickens would do fine with pea stone gravel. Chickens tend to know when something is too big for them to eat.
