I plan on fencing in another (fourth) paddock (15x15) next to my run and letting my 10 chickens pick that area clean this winter. I would then like to turn the area into a garden in the spring with the purpose of growing plants that the chicken will eat (while planted so I don't have to do a lot of picking) to offer a little diversity over the grass paddocks. Can anyone recommend what to grow? I am trying to maximize yield for the area but a little diversity would be nice. I have no idea if the chickens would let something live a watermelon vine actually grow or if they would just eat the plant at infancy. With that logic, should I just stick to herbs, spinach, romaine lettuce, ruby red, etc?
