    Last night I added a bunch of new soil along the house, put down landscaping fabric, all my annuals and red bark mulch. It looked very pretty then I realized that the chickens would likely dig in the mulch as they would my dirt (last year the ripped all the flowers out of my containers to lay in the dirt). So I woke up this morning and they had a bunch of my mulch on my walkway and lawn by 8am. All that work and they are recking it, I dont want to see it after work.

    Oh funny gals! The thought crossed my mind this morning but these rotten birds have no meat on them too eat. A fence wont work unless it is really high or they will go over it and who wants a big fence infront of the flower bed. Wish me luck going home tonight. I do have to stop at the feed store so I am hoping they may have a tip for me.

    Tara, how bout a fence for the chickens as in keep the chickens in a fenced in area. Seems a shame to let them run around and just rip stuff up after all your hard work. icon_surprised.gif)

    I would love too but they fly over the fence, they actually fly on my roof. I would have to fence in a fair sized area with a roof too it. I cant clip the wings since my one dog will kill any if they get too close to him so they need an escape. It looks much worse now. I just saw something in the paper called critter awat used to keep cats, dogs, skunks and groundhogs away for 30 days. For $7 I will try it on the chickens.

    We clipped the wings of the chickens here at work so they would stay out of the neighbor's yards. Works great. We had them nesting in the rafters of our shop till we clipped them (40 foot up).

    Tara, I think I'd clip the wings of the chickens and let them take their chances with the dog... they will soon learn to stay away from him. Better than having all your hard work torn up by the chickens... not to mention all the money you have put in to making your home look nice. icon_surprised.gif)

    Tara, why not make a fenced in pen for the chickens with a fenced top on it also so they can't fly out. You could make it any height you wanted it.

    I am going to fence in my veggie garden when I have a little extra cash. We cant lock them up because the roosters will kill each other and there isnt really enough room in the coop for frolicking, just sleeping. I am trying to get DH to give some away.
