After a week or so the ground was denuded, many grubs were eaten and there was a bit of fertilisation as well. I can't recommend chickens enough for new gardens.

Good to know. I'm in a similar situation, but with foxtail grass, and my "new garden" is almost 2 acres. I'd been thinking of dividing my flock into small, portable chicken tractors and having them clear one space at a time. I'm glad to see that someone else has tried it, and it works!
