    Hello Chicken's Lovers:
    Today I came back home with a 12 yards of tall fescue Sod left over from a little job I was doing, so instade of throwing it away, I laied it for the litlle chicks in thier coop, that way dust will be down for a while.

    Quote:around here I get it for about $0.90 a yard as a whole sale, but at the store, it might be $2.00 a yard, as I mentioned what I got today was left over from a job I was working on.
