I am a gardener for a beautiful event center. We have about 15 free range chickens on our grounds whom I find quite wonderful. The problem is, they are eating our flowers.

Has any one trained Chickens to not go into certain areas without a fence? (I goggled this and saw someone had used a broom - but not sure if this would be a long term thing)

We would love to have harmony between the plants and the birds! any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I had my chickens and vegetable beds separated by fishing line, we couldn't see it from distance, so it looked great aesthetically and worked wonderfully well with the chickens.

Well, I know my Mom uses plastic snakes in the rows of her garden to keep out the birds....wonder if that would work for chickens? Maybe lay a few next to the beds? Or the plastic owls that have the motion sensor hooting?
