I am having problems finding info using search on-line .could really use some ideas, help, and experience of others. we only have small area of ½ acre dedicated to our chickens. We would like this year to landscape this more in tune with our flocks and a nice appearance. First off would be the many days of high winds. We are searching for suggestions of some good varieties of bushes/hedges/vines to block winds. Sun in the summer time. Suggestions plants that chickens can nibble but not going to demolish. Then next would be suggestions of good pasture seeds to sow throughout the year for their ranging time. (I have fescue grass, alfalfa, and a dry land native mix) what would be a favorite of chickens and good nutrition and low-moderate water requirement we haul in our water. If anyone has photos of their landscaping jobs for chicken pastures love to see Also would like to do some sort of shelter/decorative style but functional if predators (esp from the sky) come close while our flocks are free ranging they still have shelter in mid pasture. But not a simple wood box or coop. got plenty of that in the back of property line. Its all open and just about a perfect square we have to work with. (coops are along the back north and garden fenced off on the east side otherwise is empty) only other feature we have is a small hill.
