Our flock is about 9 months old. They used to free range all day but now they are inside a large fenced yard on a steep hillside. They have eaten everything that was growing there and they have scratched a lot of the dirt down the hill. We have not had any rain in months, and I know it is going to be a mess when it starts. I am worried about erosion and would like to plant something in there to help. Can anyone provide some ideas of what I can plant in there? We live in central Texas and the area is semi-shaded. What about using jute netting to help keep the soil in place?? Thanks!
