I knew this was going to happen, but for some reason it still surprised me. The chickens scratch and peck at anything that might possibly be edible so they’ve been leaving this trail of destruction in their wake. When the new blades of green grass come under the shadow of our chicken tractor–we’ve affectionately named it “The Nugget-Mobile”–they immediately get devoured by beak and talon.
I’m told the grass will come back greener and healthier than ever, but for now I have to deal with this eyesore of dirt and dung scorched earth.
It’s a sort of destructive lawn roomba (patent pending)
