What ornamental plants, fruits, vegies are compatible with backyard chickens running free? Portland OR. Japanese theme garden.
I will be planting his small back yard this spring with food and natives that attract butterflies and wild birds. Any plants the chickens will not scratch and dig up? Send answers to firstname.lastname@example.org
I think mature oak trees might be safe from chickens. I am pretty sure a vegetable garden would be doomed.
I have read that ducks are very efficient slug removers. Some of them have great personalities. Not to say chickens don't. But chickens are designed to scratch.
