We've had chickens for a few years and let them range in the backyard. As you can predict, they destroyed the yard and now it is home to nothing but ground violets and creeping charlie.

I've built them a sizeable run and now they'll spend their days in shady, well managed confinement while I try to recover my yard.

Sooooo, best way to go about that? Round-Up everything, till, and re-seed?
