    The idea has been around for a number of years but I've heard (no personal experience) that it does not actually work all that well on account of nearly all insect pests fly real well, so they will still get into the garden and multiply there (although perhaps not *as* much as if no chickens)

    If anyone tries it, I'd like to hear more about it, though!

    That is a very neat idea.. That is some thing I need to remember when I do get some property of my own..
