OK I need some input here.
I want to get rid of the grass and weeds over the leach field in the back. I was thinking of buying some chickens and creating a chicken tractor. My thought is to have the tractor work over an area of lawn and, as I move it, plant wildflower seeds in the area just gone over. I want to start about the middle of August and go until they have covered the yard eating weed and grass seeds and bugs as they go along and depositing fertilizer too.
How about this? will it work?
This area grows way too fast. I have to, or should, mow it twice a week while the rest of the yard may be only every two weeks. I need the exercise but I then spend all my time mowing and not being able to enjoy the other aspects of gardening.
I am going to try to butcher my own chickens as they finish their work.
