Love Apple Farm

Chickens will indeed eat everything in a veggie patch, but they can be a vital and symbiotic part of a vegetable garden if you contain the properly. Give them their own small run (limit yourself to three or four laying hens), and then build a simple portable PVC structure to pop over a newly dug or harvested garden bed. Make it ultra-movable, and put a hen or two in the "chicken tractor," for a day. Be sure to put the hens back in their predator-proof coop at night!


Just recently there have been more and more reasons to get chickens. Just turning over the soil this time of year makes me see all the eggs and caterpillars in the soil for them to eat up. I don't think they would go well in a veggie patch though, I think they would eat everything!
