Hi all, I had to leave my 4' x 8' tractor in one place for 2 weeks while on vacation. My 4 hens managed to completely denude the area of any vegetation! I'd like to help the grass come back. Even in areas that aren't so heavily hit, I'm not sure that the grass is really appreciating the effect of the chickens. It might be in my head, but I think that the "tractor treatment" tends to favor dandilions over grass--perhaps they are better at regrowing rapidly? Any suggestions? I was also thinking of putting down some new grass seed on top of the muddy area...but I doubt it will do well this time of year (in Oregon). Not to mention, when my girls are free-ranging, they'd probably pick it right up.
