    Have your yard sodded. That’s what we did. We had the whole yard sodded and we had 10 chickens and the lawn looks great. Barely had to mow.

    Depending on how big your yard is, you may have to choose between chickens and a nice green lawn. Or, you may have to build your chickens a nice big run. Chickens scratch and dig for bugs. It's what they do.

    If your grass is gone now and you get it back the chickens will destroy it again.
    Agreed it'll be one or the other unless you upsize yard or downsize flock.

    Also you didn't say how big your yard was.
    If you have a 24x20 foot section the chickens are on, no you will not have any grass.
