Plants for poultry
Hello everyone, I am after thoughts and experience here. I have a small number of chickens and ducks in my garden and I am currently preparing an area for them when they are back to being free range from their own 'lockdown'. Whilst they have to be under cover it means I can work without lots of 'help' from them. They have a quite a lot of space so I can afford to consider different things. At the moment I have a blank canvas with an area sectioned off just for them. There is a path, a shed and a small greenhouse, but I am digging up the earth and weeds to give it all a good turnover and plant afresh. I am going to throw down some grass seed and then put lots of different plants in to make it I want to make their area pretty and functional so I am looking for suitable plants. I have bought a variety of herbs and some roses (apparently ducks enjoy munching on fallen rose petals) but I am wondering what else would be good to grow in their own little area. There is a paddling pool for the ducks and the water is changed regularly so I can afford to have water loving plants around but not in the pool. I am wanting plants that are safe for them to eat and enjoy being in and around. Does anyone else have a similar situation who can advise me how they have planted?
