hello to all you herbalists and gardeners out there, i'm starting to build my coop and in true get ahead of yourself fashion, i am dreaming about landscaping. i am going to put a nice bed in surrounding my coop to beautify the area and sustain my chickies. i'd like to put in plants that help control the worm situation. this way when i go out to admire them i can pick whatever looks ripe and ready and toss it to them. so i'm thinking i'll definitely put in chilis. does it have to be cayenne or will a variety of chilis do the trick? i also think i read somewhere that thyme is not pleasant for the worms. did i make this up? garlic i think is also one of them. not sure if that will grow here. would a chicken peck at a clove of garlic or do you have to slip it to them through their water or something. what else? keep in mind i live in the tropics. it's neither super dry nor super wet on my part of the island. i'm 1/2 a mile to the beach so there is that salt in the air factor to a certain extent i guess. what are your suggestions?
