I have a few lovely flower beds that our chickens love to dig and do dust baths in. We tried putting a deep layer of mulch on them and they still do it. So.....we gave them their OWN big area of mulch, near their coup, and they still choose my flower beds. I learnt last year that they will ruin my vegetable garden, so this year we have electric fence around it. But...I don't want to "electrify" my flower beds since I sit on the porch and view my lovely flowers bloom. The idea of looking through electric fencing is not what I had in mind. Is their something I can put in the mulch that will "deter" them from my flower beds? Or is their something that we can put in THEIR mulch pile that will "attract" them to it instead??? Chicken pheremones????? HA HA. Any advice would be appreciated....Help me save my favorite Lillies.
