As a result, Mr. Right came up with this...
He used PVC pipe, chicken wire and zip ties to create a chicken mower! Most afternoons, he loads the girls up in the mower then drags it to a new spot in the yard that needs mowing. They have done a great job at keeping our yard looking good!
This also means that they eat less chicken feed which makes keeping them even cheaper. Whoo!
The mower has a laying box mounted in the corner in case someone forgot to lay their egg that morning. We also give them shade by clothes pinning a towel on top when they are in the sun.
I don't know if this is a result of the mower and all the grass the girls are eating but we did get 6 eggs today. That means everyone laid one!
