Hi All, I have been trying to think of what alternatives to grass i could lay down in my chicken area. I have a 5m x 12m area of my backyard fenced off for my chickens, they have a smallish coop in there so are always allowed out into their chicken area during the day. We previously did not have the best quality and coverage of grass in there as we have a big tree in the area but since they have been in there the grass is completely non-existent and we have had a lot of rain in the last 2 months and it basically turns into a mushy mud pit! I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and layed down an alternative to grass? I was thinking maybe wood chips? Any suggestions/advice on this?
