I just had to tell someone…

..out of the 100,000+ member pages at BYC, one of my pages was featured on the homepage of BackyardChickens.com today.

When I started out with chickens 4 years ago, there were few resources promoting gardening methods to happily co-exist with pet chickens, other than keeping the chickens locked up all the time.  Lots of folks said a pretty garden with free range chickens couldn’t be done; chickens would eventually destroy everything.  I learned that isn’t true. In 2009, I decided to share on a BYC page what I learned from my experience.  In recent years there has been a wealth of publications promoting how to garden successfully with chickens, and I forgot all about that little list I compiled.  Today, I opened my email to find out, that old page is now featured on the carousel at the top of the BYC homepage.  I was tickled to see it, up there front and center.  I hope it still manages to help out some fellow gardeners.

Click here to go to where it is currently featured at backyardchickens.com and titled “Plants Chickens Don’t Eat.”  I am not sure if it is just up there for today or if it will be there for a little while. However, if it is gone by the time you read this post, the same list can be found here on a page at my blog: Chicken Resistant Plants

I am aware I am not much of a writer by any stretch of the imagination, arts and crafts are much more my thing than words.  I mainly compile posts here at my blog just to share some of the things I do around here, things I like, or things I learn, as kind of diary.  So to see an old page I made, especially one that I quickly put together and had planned to later go back and edit (but never did) and now featured at BYC, kind of made my day.  I just had to share!  🙂

  1. I know I went on there tonight and saw you. I knew it was you once I started reading. Yeah! Congrats. You are a wealth of knowledge to us new SoCal chicken owners. Mine are doing some damage to my small back yard so I am looking at what I want to plant for next year. I loved potted flowers but they ate those first. Changing things up a bit.

I would love to know what you think about this.
