My Older chickens are eating my bale chicken tractor! : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Help, my older chickens are eating my straw bale chicken tractor! They are still running around on their own and we will be letting the little ones out soon too. Yesterday I threw togethor a wheat straw bale construction, it was the cheapest thing I could find, to house some of our younger ones as an experiment from Andy Lee's book Chicken Tractor. At this rate everyone will be eating it! Any ideas?

I wouldn't worry about it- let them eat it and replace the bales as needed.

Maybe eating is not the right way to put it. They seem to be pulling it apart! Some parts are not covered well enough yet, so hopefully that will take care of it. I would love to hear from others using the bale structures. Maybe I should have posted different!
