Right now my girls have been let have the run of my small yard all day. They clearly love this...BUT....its not so great for us. Its now impossible to step outside the kitchen door, onto our deck or to do laundry without risking stepping in chicken poo. I hose it off at least once a week but I might as well not even bother. So, I need to start restricting them. I have a small yard, so I don't have a way to give them a lot of roaming room. The only good thing about giving them the whole yard is that they haven't done a lot of damage to any one part of it. I'm worried that confining them to the lawn means no more lawn. Do you think an 8' by 3' run, along with limiting their free-ranging time to just an hour a day is enough?
