I hope this is the right part of the forum to post this, but I'm going to have layers and a veggie garden for the first time this year. I have idyllic visions of puttering and weeding in the garden with my chickens at my side. Then I have absolute nightmares about the chickens just destroying all the plants in said veggie gardens. How do I make this work so I can still harvest produce and enjoy time with my chickens in the garden? I will only have the chickens in the garden with supervision, otherwise they will be in a nice big run/coop area. The gardens will be fenced to keep the dog out (and to keep garden raiders at bay) and the chickens in. I'm planting (or planning on) carrots, tomatoes, a variety of lettuce, chard, corn, peas, beans, and sunflowers (which will be dried and given as treats to the chickens). Do the chickens just start devouring everything in sight or scratch and pick at bugs? If breeds matter I'll have 3 BR and 3 gold/red stars. I plan to offer weeds and greens in the run when they are old enough to handle them. Will that help?
