Hello, we're almost done building our coop and need to put it together outside. The problem is my husband and I can't decide on where it should go. The best spot is an area of our yard that the previous homeowners apparently dumped trash at. There are broken shards of glass, batteries, and other junk spread out. I've tried cleaning it up...but things keep appearing. If we spread a layer of fill dirt over it, will they uncover the junk? Will they eat it? The other area of our yard where it could go isn't as big or convenient, and it has nice grass that I'm assuming they will ruin. Suggestions? These chicks are growing fast! Okay thanks for the replies...I was thinking the same but hoped everyone would say that chickens are super smart and would peck around the bad stuff lol. Darn. We have lots of property...that was just the best spot (other than the very harmful crap). So we'll put it elsewhere. I'm so mad at the last homeowners! And if I rototill it, won't it just spread the stuff up more? It's all little pieces, it's really hard to get out. We just thought we would keep putting dirt over it.
