    Hello Everyone!

    I live in Phoenix and have my hens in a fenced in area in my back yard and they have eaten and scratched out all the grass, of course! I wanted to plant a few long grass boxes in the run and just wanted to know what exactly to plant. I intend to staple hardware mesh on the tops of the boxes so they cannot destroy the grass inside the box.

    I was thinking about planting just plain grass in one but now sure exactly what kind of grass seed to get. And iw anted to plant something else in the other box llike clover or alphalpha, just not sure it will grow in the Arizona heat. Any thoughts/ideas?

    Thanks!!!
