    I am trying not to laugh. I so feel your pain. I am just resigned to having either chickens, or a garden, and I just keep choosing my chickens.

    When I found my first hen with fluffy butt feathers up and beak down in a pot of dianthus, it was just SO adorable. Later, when the dianthus bits were scattered all over the place and Lacey had her whole body inside that pot, dust-bathing and kicking out soil like a demon, it was still cute.

    The house I bought has a concrete planter bed all along the length of the porch, which runs the full width of the house. I knew it would never hold flowers. The whole flock loves to dust bathe in it.

    May I suggest a small green house for your herbs?
