Just consider yourselves warned... Trying to have my backyard flower garden coexist with my foraging chickens. Certain plants I am willing to let them pick at, scratch in, and bed on... however... my daylilies have been trampled and scratched up at every opportunity they get, (just another sacrifice I guess) along with a lot of fresh growth and seedlings coming up that I will never get to see bloom (probly ever again :tear) I have made barriers around certain plants and flowers.... but it's a hopeless cause. I think it's time to come to terms with the fact that my backyard will never be the same again. I love my chickens (and I only have 4 of them) Im just not too fond of this habit Watch your flowers... enjoy them before they get carelessly ruined.
