    I'm planning to extend my run out where I have a 10 year old roemary bush-I'll let you know how long it lasts lol. Does anyone know if daylilies are harmful to chickens? There must be a plant list somewhere.

    You could try a vine plant on the outside of the run that will cover the run. Like a cucumber plant. I am gonna try it this year
