I do rotate my beds each year. This year the garlic is where they tomatoes were. I've only usually grown tomatoes and garlic.
I do have an herb garden but of course they don't get rotated. I'll be redoing that whole garden next year. Building new beds.
The perennial herbs will be moved to around my chicken runs. The chickens don't bother some herbs, so they should be good there.
An enclosed chicken run makes a good place for composting. I just dumped some peat moss and grass clippings in one of mine. Too when cleaning the coop you can just toss the cleanings into the run. I just realized this year that it was a good idea when cleaning this run. Everything was pretty much broke down. Good compost doesn't smell and this was great. Nice and light. At least one bale of that hay will be used to keep the floor of the run dry this winter.
Keep in mind not all things work for everyone. Good compost needs moisture too. So if you live in a dry area a little water can help.
