In the Spring, I planted pumpkin seeds and the birds kept eating the seedlings. So I took the hoop coop I made for the chicks while they were growing and covered the pumpkin mound with it to keep the birds and chickens out....the pumpkin vines grew out through the poultry netting and the pumpkins sit right on the netting...easy to pick...I left the door open on it one day and the chickens started going in and using it for shade and dirt bathes...so I sprinkled some poultry dust in the soil to kill and lice or mites on the chickens and the chickens ate all the beetles that are harmful to pumpkins...worked out great.
..just wanted to share...

Great!
You know, I'm going to have to do something like that next year for my fruit & veggie garden, my flock kept finding ways to get in & eat all the juicy pickings they could.
