I hope this is the correct place to post this, because I need to manage to keep the chickens out of a flower bed to keep them from becoming soup. Story: My wife and I bought a house last year, and there is much needed room for yard improvement. The problem is, I have free range chickens(layers) and they go EVERYWHERE. My wife has been a really good sport about their roaming, but has warned me that it is time to start her flower beds and they better stay out or will become soup. I know she isn't joking because we raise Cornish X and have no problems butchering our own meat. Question: Is there any plant that will deter the chickens from getting in the flower beds? Any advise on how to keep nice looking flower beds and keep them chicken proof?
