Okay, so we're going to extend the run, and I tell hubby not to mow the area that we're going to extend into because I want the grass to grow up before we put chickens out there. I'd like them to be able to have at least a little grass for a little while, since I know they do such a good job tearing it all down. We made the mistake of putting the chickens out before the grass had a chance to grow up, and as a result they didn't have much for greens to eat. Well, I told him not to mow, and I wake up to find everything mowed down!!! Now I have to wait another 2 weeks before I can extend the run!!! I'm so freakin mad right now!!! Why the h*** can't he ever listen to me!!!!! I really wanted to get the run extended this weekend, and I also wanted the grass to grow up before I put our cornish X's out. Not gonna happen! So now, I either have to wait or let them out before the grass grows, meaning we'll have huge bare patches.
