    Mine do it to, I noticed the don't mess with my plants above ground but dig up my bulbs, so I just fence it off, not that pretty unless you get iron or something decorative. Let me know if there is a better answer.

    That's just the natural behavior of chickens. If you don't want them doing it I'd suggest you build a pen or fence.
