Hello all! We are preparing for our chickens and having a hard time deciding how to lawnscape our chicken run. It is 21’x16’ and they will spend most of their time there since we don’t want them to roam in the backyard where our little one will be playing. I wanted to plant some grass for them, but I have been reading that chickens will tear up any kind of plant. We live in rainy oregon, so I would rather not let them slosh around in mud all the time, and I don’t want it to turn into a stinky mud and poo pit for our neighbors. What are your ideas? Do you put down cedar shavings around the run? Plant bushes/trees? Any ideas are helpful! Thanks!
