Four children, three dogs, and countless moles and grubs ago, I gave up on what used to be a showplace lawn. Now it is mostly clover, dandelions, and wire grass. I/we now have chickens in a tractor and move it every day. We've been growing some brown top millet in little pots for them. The 13 chix are now approaching only 4 and 6 weeks old, yet they savaged a 3" pot (greenery, dirt, and most of the roots) of 4" millet sprouts in a matter of minutes! I suddenly have the urge to grow a nice lawn for the chicks, as they must be craving something that isn't there. DW, who is supposed to be the chicken lady, won't let me plant more clover. I'd like to knock the rust off of the aerator and the broadcast spreader and put in something that the chicks would enjoy in the spring and the DW will tolerate. My questions: 1. are there any grasses that chix prefer that could make a decent looking lawn? 2. are there any fertilizers/soil enhancers that can be applied that won't hurt the chix? I am not interested in killing weeds, or eliminating any indigenous growth. I just want to add something that will be beneficial to our flock. Thanks!
