Our chickens have a large enclosure within out large yard. Amazingly, though, 3 chickens are able to turn a large green space brown very quickly.
I fenced off half of their enclosure several months ago and have been letting the greenery there grow back.
Today I opened up this ‘pasture’ to them. The ladies will get some luscious green before the dryness of our Pacific Northwest summer sets in.
Here you can see small scale rotational grazing in progress in a semi urban setting:
The line is distinct between the grazed and newly opened up pasture.
Bienvenidos a la verde.
