If everything works out i will be a proud chick-momma in three weeks. The first 8weeks is not what i am concered right now, they will have a brooder. I am wondering how they will act once they have accsess to the garden, you know once they are moved into the future coop. They will kind of have to share the yard with my veggies and raspberries and salads. Will they eat them or leave them alone????
I like to eat the veggies myself

Our girls did not go for veggies unyil they were about 3-4 months old. Now they attack anything put in the run. This year they will get their own garden with alfalfa and wheat grass planted in it. The goal is to give them something green to nibbles on that will grow back and buts and critters for them to eat in the only irrigated area in the free range territory. I will have to protect the compost piles until it's their turn to tear them apart and turn them. Little do they know I'm putting them to work .
They will get plenty of stuff from the veggie gardens but only when I give it to them.
