Presents advice for keeping chickens in the garden, discussing such topics as housing, garden design, landscaping, fencing, plant choices, and predator control.

Many gardeners fear chickens will peck away at their landscape, and chicken lovers often shy away from gardening for the same reason. But the truth is a beautiful chicken-friendly garden is within easy reach, and award-winning garden designer Jessi Bloom proves it with Free-Range Chicken Gardens. A well-designed chicken garden offers chickens a healthy habitat and organic diet. The chickens in turn fertilize and aerate the soil and act as natural pest control. In this win-win scenario, the gardener reaps the additional pleasures of farmfresh eggs, a beautiful, healthy garden, and a uniquely picturesque panorama. With useful information on introducing chickens to a garden, gardening around chickens, strategies to protect precious plants, and design elements that encourage healthy play for the chickens in the garden, here is everything a chicken-loving gardener needs to know.

Contents:

Chickens and gardens, working together -- Chickens in your garden : practical considerations -- Designing a chicken-friendly garden -- Landscape materials for chicken gardens -- Plants with purpose -- Innovative chicken housing -- Friends and foes of hens in the garden.
