Hello! I have been reading the forum forever, but I finally decided to make an account so that I can ask a quick question, and then eventually post responses to help others out. I bought 6 baby pullets at the feed store last week, but then I decided that I really wanted chickens that were already laying as well. I hopped on craigslist, and found someone right down the road that has 15 7 month old hens who are adorableeee, and a huge chicken coop for sale. I reallly really want the entire setup, but I'm wondering if my yard can support this many hens? I have about .75 acres of back yard that is fenced in. The coop would be in there, and the chickens would be allowed out in the chainlink fence during the day. I have read conflicting things on if the chickens will get out of my fence or not, but it is about 5 ft tall. If I do this would the chickens completely de-grass my back yard? Is this really too many chickens for my small area too? I raise mealworms for my reptiles, and I plan on giving them lots of treats, but it seems like they may still tear out my grass. The yard is extremellllly grassy ( mowing once a week in the summer results in ft tall grass between mowing), and there is a ton of weeds out there. I'm trying to give as much info as possible, but feel like I may be rambling so anything else that would help to make the determination if this is big enough or not, let me know.
