So we let our girls free range quite often when we are home. The only thing is, they love the garden as much as we do !!
I had to put up some simple fencing - trellis and stakes , to stop them scratching and eating our edibles. It’s just a short fence and I can access the bed easily. Now we have our garden and the girls have the rest 😂
Protecting your newly planted edibles from your chooks is easy by using a few stakes and some chicken mesh.
I am growing a Truss Tomato and Climbing Red Spinach up the chook run fence to provide some extra shade for the hot months to come.
Nice one @mich1972. I'm sure all those who have backyard chickens will really appreciate these tips.
Many thanks for sharing.
Good stuff @mich1972 👍
As a fellow backyard chook person, I share your concern about the chooks enjoying the garden just a bit too much. 😁
I like that plastic roll up stuff you have used as a fence.
I'll take some photos tomorrow to show what I have done here, as I free range my girls all day, but have a number of garden beds that they look at as an all you can eat buffet. 😮
