    Are chickens okay to wander through garden beds, or will they hassle with the plants? I’ve always wondered if they would be good for picking pesty bugs off my food plants, but not sure if they’d eat or scratch up the veggies. Any thoughts?

    I allow my chickens in my garden beds when I don’t have food plants growing. Not because they will eat the produce so much but because they will scratch and dig up anything. They will occasionally sample produce but the amount of grubs and bugs they eat is a fair tradeoff.
