    yes a member but don't have chickens anymore, so don't post there. A word of warning raccoons have the strength of a little bear, and will kill every bird they can.

    They will eat everything. I let my chickens in the garden in the fall when the garden is finished. They are in there all winter until the first plants are put out. I am an organic gardener and rarely have to use any organic sprays to help my plants. I attribute it to my chickens eating the larvae of pests.

    Welcome! I would suggest a compost pile.....and most anything you toss from the garden can go to the chickens first. I only put tea bags, potato and onion stuff, in the compost. And ALL of the coop mess off of the coop floor.
