Hello. I live in Australia on approximately 2 acres and due to a very wet and warm summer last year, our paddock is full of beautiful long grass. I have thought about putting a horse in there to eat it but have in the past had chickens and thought I might like to have fresh eggs again. My question is, does anyone think they will be good at eating down the long grass? My issue with the long grass is that we get snakes here, and as most probably know, Australian snakes are not nice ones...very poisonous. Our cat has been bitten twice by an Eastern Brown Snake and once by an Eastern Tiger Snake (still alive!). So, just wondering if anyone has had good success of free range chickens munching down a fair amount of grass. When I say a fair amount of grass, most of it is up to mid shin to knee length and some parts are longer. Thanks.
