    We are planning on planting a garden by the chickens this coming spring/summer. I was wondering what plants are safe and which ones are not. Thank you!

    Speaking from experiance fence it off. I gave ours free access last spring and summer and hand barely any thing and some days nothing i could harvest because they had eaten everything. The love tomatoes, eggplant (mine dont eat the leafs off either), squash, cumcumber, zucchini, bell peppers, jalopeno, poblano peppers. The peppers they didnt touch everything else i was luckly if i found one. Snow peas, green beans, letuces, Spinach, swiss chard. Oh and the brats have taken up eating the leafs off my lemon sappling[​IMG] they also sit on it. My garden got fence in this year oh and water melon cantalope, strawberrie blueberries blackberties and raspberries. Mine i believe are part goat.

    Garden plants as in fruits and veggies? Or bushes and shrubs?
