    Is there any type of flower or flowering plant that the chickens will not eat?

    I wouldn't mind prettying up their area.

    The bigger issue will be that they will do a lot of digging. Are you talking about putting it in their run, or outside their run? Do they free range? You may need to surround any of your plantings with fencing to keep them from digging the stuff up. Deer netting works well for that sort of thing.
