why cant we have chook friendly plants in the veggie patch. I go to all the trouble to get a high fence around the freshly planted winter veggies. I let the chooks have the other half of the garden, that dose it good before I get the spring veggies in it . They seem to like the freshly planted bit as usual, picking up the left overs is not on for them . They will go to great lengths to get in there, any whole any gap, and your going to suffer, and there's nothing like a new Savoy cabbage, or a sprout plant, or even new Pease for that matter your going to loose them all what do you have to do .

I am hoping to build a completely enclosed tractor to fit just inside the garden beds. Hopefully it will be light enough for the two of us to move over when necessary. Until we have built this, as cute as they are, my chickens are not going to get a look in on the veggie garden.
