So we have a few Ameraucanas and are going to be getting some Orpingtons soon to breed for our family's meat. In order to keep feed costs down we have decided to set up their yard as a paddock system where we will have four sections that we rotate them through weekly. My idea is to use one of the four sections for our familyc's veggie garden that year while roating them through the other three until we arent using it anymore, then the following year use a different section for the garden, etc. For this reason, we will want to keep most of the space able to be tilled and planted every few years, so big perennials like shrubs and trees etc will need to go around the edges. What do you all think of this plan? Not sure if it worked, but im trying to attach a quick sketch of my plqn. The center square is the coop, the purple along the top is an existing blackberry patch that spills over into the space, the big orange squares are where id put some raised beds, and the green dot is an existing small young tree thqt we may or may not keep (i believe it is japanese weeping willow?). Please let me know some ideas for plants, both prenniel and annual. So far we would like to do plum trees, maybe a mulberry tree, and probably some grasses like alfalfa etc. We definitely want plants that will provide a balanced diet for the chickens as well as provide food for our family. Any other ideas? Please tell us what purpose it serves also (ei good source of protein, cover from birds of prey, etc). Thanks!
