Tilly's Nest: Chicken Coop Tour with Edible landscaping: On the trellis, I have planted three raspberry bushes and nasturtium. In the gardens, are swiss chard, celery, lavender, cilantro, marjoram, rosemary, cilantro, borage, cabbage, ornamental grasses, dill, coneflowers, hostas, black eyed susan, sunflowers to name a few. All of these are safe around your flock.
The chicken run is covered with a cedar shingled roof that helps keep predators out and protect the chickens from the Cape Cod elements. Pro tip: Predator proof your coop using hardware cloth. Avoid chicken wire, too: It's meant to keep chickens in, but will not hold up to predator attacks. - CountryLiving.com
