    so I am looking at Hancock Seed company's "Happy hen mix" for seeding my septic field.

    Any thoughts? any other things I should add to the mix to help keep them fed "off of the land" verses "out of my pocketbook?"

    Going to fence it off with electric net fencing to get it going...anyone know how long I should keep it fenced so that they don't decimate it?
