I figured the best place to ask would be here. I am planning to plant grass seed soon, and I have chickies about 24. My question is will they eat the grass seed? I assume they will, any ideas how to keep them from doing so, what are good covers for the seed, I have been doing a lot of reading and I would have thought straw but I have been reading straw will make weeds. And fertilizer, will that hurt the chickens if they would happen to get into it?
