Has anybody here had any success with putting chicken wire on the ground to prevent the chickens from scratching all the grass up. I dont mind it so much that they have taken the grass but they are continueing to scratch the dirt and now that area is becoming lower than the rest of the yard creating Hen Lake when we have rains. My idea is this- Create a new run on the other side of the hen house with wire on the ground. While they are running around this new yard (hopefully not scratching the grass out) I can fill in the old yard with good dirt and resodding it. Once that grows I can alternate between the runs to keep it green Sounds like this will work or no?
