Do you have ideas for improving foraging opportunities in small runs?
My chickens' outdoor runs get picked and scratched bare.
DS15 put sod down following edging overgrown cement. I thought that was a great idea! DS7 likes to rake leaves and dump them in. Its not much, doesnt go far.
My only remaining idea is to build a chicken tunnel to get them out of the run. But that will have the same problems eventually.
How do I get bugs back in these areas?
I use short fence panels for the silkies in their courtyard because they can't fly over them. Restrict where they can range. I've seen setups with 3 large pens for one coop with separate pop doors so they can be funneled to certain pens. Let's the vegetation recover.
