Gardens and Chickens don’t mix

Well! My garden was looking really good; and I thought it had been in long enought, that if I let out the chickens that they wouldn’t do too much damage.  Boy! Was I ever wrong; I now have no lettuce, spinich, or radishes left and most of my peas are down to nothing as well.   I am sure they will come back; but I don’t like keeping the chickens in all the time either.   They need to be out roaming around and eating bugs and stuff.   My strawberries they have not gotten to yet; but I am going to make the fence around them taller, as I have 6 plants that have blossoms on them and I want strawberries.    Chickens need about 4lbs of feed a day; so even though I have free feed for them, I find it easier and healthier to let them out as well.   This is the first year I really remember the chickens destroying my garden, but then again I my have not let them out in to the garden as soon as I did this year.   I still have so much to plant and so little time to do everything.   I hope my garden survives the chickens; I really do not want to have to pen them all the time and I don’t want to lose all the stuff I planted and what not.
