So my run is all dirt. Because of recent events, I no longer can free range my chickens. That means they are stuck in their all dirt run. The biggest part is maybe 20 x 30 and then the covered run is about 8 x 12. I am thinking about sectioning the back half off, planting grass and then giving them time in the grass. But here is where I have a few questions. First...will this even work, or be worth it? Or will they still kill it if I'm a schedual, like one week on, one week off. Second... if you rotate your runs, what is your schedual. How much time do you give them on the grass? I am trying to make the run look better, and give my chickens a healthier diet. Any plants/bushes that grow well in a run? I am zone 4. I am also cutting my number of chickens to around 20. On a side note...Has anyone ever felt discouraged about their chickens? I do love having them, but with bumble foot, scaley leg mites, lice, dog attacks and complaining neighbors...I am just, disheartened. And get this, one person who complained, lives in the next town, about 6 miles away. I just do not even know how to take that. Thanks!
