Is there any way to keep grass or cover prop alive in a duck run? I am definitely planning on doing grazing frames as well, but what about the whole run? Is there a certain hardy seed I can plant that might survive a duck, eating and walking on it? I was thinking cover crop instead, since it may be hardier then a normal grass seed? Any ideas? Without the option of a covered run, I would love to have plants as a solution to soak up water, so the run isn't so muddy! I just need the grass to survive. I think if I start with sod, so that the grass is already established in the sod rolls, then plant the cover crop seed on top, then it will make it easier to grow since the seeds wont just be eaten or trampled, but can be hidden by the sod? Thanks for any suggestions!
