Hi, I'm thinking of setting up a coop at the end of my garden, and I've never kept chickens before. What do chickens need to scratch around in? I've got a concrete path that runs across the back of the garden that would be an ideal space to put them, but if they need grass/straw or something else then I need to think about that for the design of my run & coop. I'm thinking of building something similar to the chicken tractor found in the coop designs.... This site is great btw - some great info up here!! Thanks!
