Guess what animal is doing some unwanted gardening on our farm? Busted!
Now how do we keep them out? Does anyone have suggestions?

    I’m having the same issue. What I will be doing tomorrow (which should be sunny) is putting up wire fencing over two pasture gates, a rock under the third (where they go under), and repairing a hole in the pasture fence. Then they will stay in the pasture, hopefully – I would like my vegetable garden to do well this year!

      LOL, sounds like our chickens are not alone. We normally have them in a fenced in area. We used electric chicken netting. But they just fly over it. I think we need to train the dogs to guard the gardens by the house.

    I wonder if they scratch at rubber mulch as much. I had to show my wife the second photo. We had been watching a fancy cooking show. “Look Honey” I says, “It’s an unassembled grilled chicken salad”. But, that may be an extreme way to deal with the problem!
