There's no flat land in my neck of the woods. I have a secure covered coop & run (which is flat) inside a larger fenced run (which is not flat). The chickens have been busy landscaping the exterior run and I need to figure out a good way to stabilize the steeper areas. I was thinking about laying stuff like bent old chicken wire, landscape cloth etc directly on the ground. I know this would generally not be good for their feet, but the bulk of the run area would still be dirt & weeds etc for them to scratch around in. Hoping to get some input from you folks. Anyone tried this?
