Chickens are capricious, too…

…and they make messes everywhere, but at least they eat ticks.

We keep hens for eggs and for bug control.   If a plant is  destroyed by bugs, it should be tolerated or removed.  It is probably in the wrong place, anyway.   I don’t believe in spraying for insect pests, especially in the ornamental garden.  Even in the vegetable garden, we don’t use insecticides, ever.  But we do have an army of hens at work every day.

That’s so neat you have chickens. I have a friend who just hatched chicks that will need a home if you need any more. Ticks are so scary! I don’t care what people say, they freak me out. I contracted Lyme disease last summer, not fun.
