    I have a number of artichoke plants in my front yard that need dividing. I don't have much space in front to put them. I'm wondering if I plant them in my backyard where my hens range free if they will be tempted to eat them. Especially in fall and spring when they have young growth on them.

    Does anyone out there have artichoke plants and chickens living together in peace? Or has anyone lost a artichoke plant to a chicken before?

    Thanks!
