I would like some advice on pathways I'd like to create in the area where the 3 chickens free range.. I noticed poop on concrete looks horrible. Wondering about bark, pea gravel and 1/4" minus gravel. The later compacts but has sharp edges. Would this hurt the pullets? Sounds like pea gravel is safe but I don't like a path that makes so much sound. And which pathway might be easiest to clean the poop off? Right now the backyard is under construction. Am still trying to figure out how to make a garden for the girls, a wildflower garden and more raised garden beds which I will fence. So far the girls have not done too much damage to the landscape. The rhododendrons, hosta, ferns, hydrangea, twinberry, roses, salal, rattlesnake plant, inside out flower, meadow rue, goatsbeard, thimbleberry, lilac have all survived! Yeah!!! Dang they may have eaten the columbine. Not sure. They love the blue eyed mary and violets which are everywhere. So no problem there. They scratch the heck out of my oxallis, crocus and decapitated lots of the squash. Ate kale down to the stems. Ate sala berries and raspberries. But overall, I'm pretty happy that I don't have a barren landscape!!! Any thoughts on pathway materials appreciated!
