Nothing is safe from the chickens if they can reach it!

I caught my naughty chickens stripping the leaves off the autumn raspberry bushes this week. They stick there heads right through the fence and tear off the leaves.

Some of the bushes are stripped bare. I just need the warm weather to make the raspberries grow faster than the chickens can eat the leaves.

I have tried putting things along the bottom of the fence to stop them but they are crafty little things and can jump very well. They can’t jump into the veggie patch as we clipped their wings to stop them eating everything we grow!

I will keep a close eye on this!

  1. Apply “chicken wire” to the outside of the wood fence.

  2. If only they could only eat the bad bugs and leave the fruit & veg alone!

  3. Walktx beat me to my suggestion… I have the same problem with the chickens eating my rose blossoms, and you’re right, they can leap very high! Lynda

  4. Good luck keeping them away!
