The Q&A Archives: new garden old chickens !

Question: I have a new garden located on my property and also have free range chickens, the chickens are now eating some of the small plants ?> any way to keep them out with out erecting a 10 foot high fence ?

Answer: To keep our chickens out of the flower garden I use 12-inch wooden kabob sticks, pointed up, around each newly planted flower. The chickens hate being poked and leave my flowers alone. When the plants get bigger I remove the sticks. Maybe this will work for you, too.
