Okay, so the garden is well established and I have kept my 5 girls "cooped" up in their run while everything grew up. I have swiss chard, tomatoes, muskmelon, spaghetti squash, zucchini, pumpkin, ground cherries, acorn squash and green peppers. Will the hens just eat bugs or go after the fruits of my labors?? Last year I waited until after harvest to let them out for some monitored free ranging but that's a good 2 month away and they look forlornly at the yard outside of their run. Does anyone else let their chickens out near the garden??
