    Last year we had some damage to our backyard, with the 3 girls free ranging everywhere. This spring I decided to enlcose our veggie garden, as the main free range area. I let Rosie out (lost 2, 2 new young babies not out yet) in the main yard supervised only. I found the cute "welcome" chicken thingy, I put on the gate, at a thrift store- had to have it! We used the "pig fencing" we already had, attched with metal posts (ditto). Only thing we bought was chicken wire to attach to fencing, and a 2x2 for the gate. We also added a door to the end of the coop, so we can let the girls out directly to the garden. Works great!

    Is this garden just for the chickens?

    It was our pre-existing veggie garden with various berries, etc. We just fenced it in for them...

    Looking good! Willing to bet though, all things green will soon disappear...

    All the green things are fine, she just digs around a lot. She free ranges, when I'm out, in the rest. But she is verboten from my flower beds...
