In the Brooder
- Apr 30, 2016
We had to have our entire 1 acre yard dug up and need to plant something there. It's about 70% dirt. I have 40 hens which roam and eat everything that is not covered with leaves. Does anyone know a way to plant grass seeds and ground cover over the property and keep the chickens from eating it while it's growing? I saw a hunter on YouTube who pounded the seeds in the ground so the dear wouldn't eat it until it was grown.But chickens? Any ideas? We'd like to plant 50% edible ground cover and grass and the rest something that the chicken's won't eat. Running out of time and need help.
