I knew all day I had to tell you something and I couldn't remember what Last night I was reading the Earth User's Guide to Permaculture (simple book with cartoons...perfect for me) and got to page 88, controlling weeds in the orchard and it says chooks will contol oxalis, nutgrass, kikuyu and couch. Forehead slapping moment 'cos we all KNOW that anyway don't we?? LOL Just how big an area are we talking? Can you not buy yourself 3000 chooks?? :shock: Everyone from here could post you a chook I spose :lol: Tezza can post you three. If it's a huge area you could set up pens using portable fences and get them to tractor small areas at a time, is that an option?? It'll work if you can overstock, just look at chook pens after a while....they look like a lunar landscape.
