I was going to call this post gardening with chickens, but today it has been more keeping chickens and gardens separated!
I hate to keep them cooped up but I hate them destroying plants, especially bulbs that cost a small fortune in the Fall!
So today, in the glorious, but still chilly, sunshine I installed a couple of trial systems!
I just love having them garden with me, conversation is low and calming!
I am hoping that since they can't get their feet to scratch through the wire, they won't do as much damage and eventually plants will just grow through the wire.
Of course this does not stop them from tromping over it with their big feet!
This is definitely more organic. It also works better on plants that already have some structure like these poor struggling wallflowers.
I shall be back out there and see if any other methods come to mind!
