I want to make a special "garden" for my chickens with a bunch of yummy plants for them to chow on. They are just 10 weeks old and have already decamated the grass in their coop/run and I cannot let them fully free range because 1. we have lost some birds to local bobcats and 2. they love MY garden too much. I let them out to free range when I am home and hanging outside so I can supervise but would love to have another fenced in place I can put them in during the day to enjoy a not so free-range free-range. I am thinking I would rotate times the chickens would be in the "garden" to keep the plants from being destroyed like chickens have a tendency to do rather quickly. I would like to plant it now and give it a decent amount of time to get established before exposing it to the chickies. Do any of you do this? What might be some good plants? I was thinking tomatoes might be good once the plants get big enough and some kind of grass/grain?
