I have recently put my girls onto a patch of earth because they were wrecking the grass. I put a load of bark down which they have merrily scratched all outside the run. But the problem i have is tht they are digging thier way under the fox proof bit of the run. The way they are going they will be out from under it soon.
What can i do? Should i be puting something ie patio slabs or kerb stones around the edge of the run to stop them?
they have dug pretty deep and i think your right they are trying to get to the greenery. What can i do to give it to them? Like i said i have taken them off the grass bec they completly wreck a patch in 3-4 days so have to move them round constantly. They love to be out but its getting the opportunity to do it ie keeping the dog in or making sure I out in the garden constantly.
If you are not moving your run about then could you put a low border (log roll or something) around it so the bark couldn't get scattered far? I am currently nagging waiting for DH to do this for our chooks as they have managed to kick the woodchippings seeminly all over the garden!
