Have at it!

My cover crop test area has been doing well, so I thought it was time to let the chickens have at it.

This is the best looking spot in my yard.
 I left two of the stakes in place and made a square adjacent to the last one.  As you can see from the picture, I'm going to have to do this a lot.  I have a lot of bare patches of yard.

This is a closeup picture.  You can see all of the tiny clover amongst the winter rye.

It took them a while to realize that the fence was no longer there.  They spent a lot of time investigating that area, but so far they've managed not to destroy it.
