It's getting to be about the time that we'll need to fertilize our lawn. The girls are on it daily in the afternoon & evening. This will be our first time fertilizing now that we have chickens. I called a local farm supply store and they recommended a Dr. Earth product. I'm wondering if anyone out there has experience with this? Our lawn is about 10,000 square feet, so we need to be efficient in terms of effort and price. At a minimum, The Dr. Earth stuff would cost us $80. Yikes. Yes, the girls do poop all over, but they tend to favor some parts of the lawn over others, so what they give is not going to be enough. We are using the deep litter method in their coop/run so we won't have available composted manure until the spring. And how would be spread that over 10,000 square feet anyway? My husband says any kind of compost will clog up our drop spreader. I'd love to hear your suggestions.
