Hi All! First post and I don't have chickens yet but am planning on starting my lifelong love of chickens next spring. I am planning on getting about 6 Easter Eggers as I want my chickens for eggs and pets, not dinner. I live in the Pacific Northwest. My question is this. I had originally planned on letting my chickens roam my garden as natural bug munchers, but have quickly realized through my research that they will dig up and eat my garden to pieces. What is a good coop/run design to allow the chickens to help with garden bugs but keep them out of the garden. I have enough land to "free range" them quite a bit but love the idea of dual purpose chickens. As of yet I have not started on my coop construction and will most likely buy a prefab something and install the necessary fencing myself. I'd love all ideas and especially some pic's of other people's set ups.
