Two Birds with One….

Chicken run with grape vines and morning glories.

The chickens live in this fenced-in “room”, which is kind of sad that they cant roam, but with the number of raccoons, dogs, foxes, cats, hawks, etc. we have, it’s their only option. This does, however, provide a wonderful trellis for all sorts of vining plants – the first chicken area is covered with grapes, the second has newly planted kiwis, and they both are also home to beautiful vining flowers that the hummingbirds love. In turn, the chickens’ wastes help to nourish the plants and provide us with bumper crops of fruit. Wonderful!
