growing veg and keeping chooks

asked someone once how to successfully grow veg if you keep chickens ...they told me to fence them in ...

is this right...surely they didnt mean the chooks

    Lol that looks right but mine would jump over that low fence.... the legbars will go over 3 ft no problem... I tried to grow them some spinach one year but they trampled down the fence before it was ready!! It was gone in minutes as they all bowled in.

    Strangely enough - that's just how I interpreted it too Kath!  

    Although courgettes usually survive unscathed due to the hairy leaves.

    One year one of my Barnevelders took a fancy to raspberry foliage, and put the whole patch back a few weeks!~:>

    Mine too Helen. New raspberry canes planted last year - looked moth eaten yesterday then realised that they had pushed down the fence and helped themselves!
