What a timely post - I have been wondering what type of perennial grass would you recommend spreading if I was planning on running chickens on it?

SH --- In my experience, chickens like the tender, small-leaved grasses the best. Something like bluegrass or perennial ryegrass could be a good choice, but it will depend on your climate and where you live. Definitely add in some white clover!
