First of all I want to say that this forum and organization has been instrumental in getting started in urban chickens. I used this website to build my coop and start a flock last year. The resources here are amazing. Thank you. Now to my dilemma. I enjoy landscaping as much as I do my chickens, but the chickens are starting to scratch around my natural areas kicking dirt into the yard. I wouldn't mind if it was a little, but I let chickens out everyday and they are taking over. I could always cut back their outdoor time, but don't want to do that. Can anyone recommend a mulch that would be hard for the chickens to kick around? Or any other solution that doesn't involve fences. The picture shows some mulch in the yard. But it has gotten worse. The nest and find worms in it.
