What about beautiful plants for our gardens that are chicken-resistant? Chickens simply avoid many ornamental plants. Of course, there will always be exceptions with animals, because they have different taste preferences and attitudes. Chickens usually do much more damage with their feet than with their beaks, and often they ignore plants altogether. As we do with our children and dogs, we need to supervise our chickens, especially when they are new to our garden.
Sure, we published a book with everything you need to know to start your own chicken garden. But one lucky person will also win a complete chicken garden start-up kit, including:
- $50 gift card for chicken feed or supplies from McMurray Hatchery
- One chicken coop plan from The Garden Coop (a $20 value)
- 1 lb. of organic chicken forage blend and seeds for chicken-friendly plants from Peaceful Valley Farm & Garden Supply (a $20 value)A copy of Free-Range Chicken Gardens
