    My chickens eat my vegetables! Even potato plants! We had to fence them out. They eat all seedlings and grown plants. I thought chickens were great for the garden?? Mine just destroy it…why?

    I have small greenhouse gardens, 2, 12×20, and a large outdoor space, 40x 30 in n Wi
    . Would a cover crop benefit my gardens?

    As a chicken caretaker and gardener I’m know from first hand experience how mutually beneficial the two are! It’s good to have a list of good cover crops for chickens to enjoy!

    What a great article. We have always let our chickens pick through our garden in the fall. This year is the first time we are trying a cover crop. I can’t wait to see what the chickens do!!!

    I’m so happy to have chickens that I can have help me with my garden and lawn. Love how they get rid of all the bugs so they don’t come into my house.
