So we were tryin' to figure out what we want to do to protect our new garden space from the deer, and it occurred to me that if we're already thinking about fencing it, what if we went ahead and made a narrow hallway-esque covered chicken run encircling the entire garden to make a "chicken moat" around it? Hopefully it would keep the deer out, AND the chickens could eat any bugs trying to crawl their way into my veggies. AND then after the harvest, we can just let the chickens into the actual garden to clean it up and fertilize it for next year! Has anyone ever done anything like this? Is this a crazy smart idea or just crazy?
