We live in south Florida in a rural area and our chickens cannot free range due to predators. So we built a large pen to keep everyone in with shade cloth on top for the daytime portion. One downside to the shade cloth is that nothing grows underneath it. I apologise if this seems like a dumb question, but does anyone have suggestions how I can grow greens of any kind for the chickens to eat? Only solution I can think of is to build wooden trays with dirt and try to grow greens ( I do not have a green thumb), but they will be heavy to carry in and out of the coop. There must be a better way. If anyone has found the solution, please let me know. Many thanks.
