The buds are coming up and we don't want the chickens to eat them. We couldn't just not let them out, so I did my best to block of the heavily budded areas with sleds, chairs and blueberry netting. It kind of worked, but the chickens still got to them. In the end we decided to just stay out with them, and make sure they did not eat the buds. As the buds blossomed into flowers and bluebells covered the grass, we noticed that the chickens were not eating the flowers now that they were big. We stopped watching them all the time and they had the yard back.
