Do you have any wire netting that you do not want any more?  I have fenced off a new area for my chooks to  graze in. Unfortunately the area is sloped and they are scratching the soil down the hill.  I would like to cover the ground with second hand wire netting.  This would stop them scratching the soil, but would allow them to eat the grass and weeds.

PS they have plenty of other areas where they can scratch to their hearts content.

If you have some netting that you would like to donate to my deserving chooks, please send me a message or place a comment below this post.

Hi, know where there is some netting you could have.
It is at Brighton, Brisbane.
Email me at sjones (at) apex (dot) net (dot) au for contact details.
Today the chicken wire netting was taken by someone who lives closer.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
