Last weekend I proudly finished landscaping some limestone lined flowerbeds around the chicken coop and planted some nice hostas and daylilies. (I am sure you know where this is going) The chickens are in their run and do not have access to the new flowerbed. BUT...I do let the chickens out to free range a couple of hours each day. Well much to my surprise when I went out to put them away yesterday guess what was gone...my new hostas. They ate them right down to a few little sprigs sticking up. Fortuantly they must not have liked the daylilies because they were still intact. I am still learning to be smarter than my chickens!
