This spring the back half of the yard where the chickens range was weed free and green. The front half was all weeds. The chickens like to eat all the weeds leaving the yard nice and weed free and they fertilize as they walk. To get the birds into the front half of the back yard we have to worry about Benny, our lab-mut chicken eater. I borrowed a electric poultry net and cut the front half of the back yard into two parts. One for Benny and one for the chickens.
