Looking for advice on developing areas of lawn (grass and mixed broadleaf plants) into pasture. I'm going to run geese, ducks and chickens through this year, and I'm wondering if I should seed something in after each pass with the birds.

Usually you do not need to seed. You can add clover if you wish. One of the interesting things about grassland is that as management changes, so does the composition of the plants, whether you seed or not.
