I don't have chooks @Mindy so Googled as I was interested to find out. This article was the top result -


I would certainly encourage you to at least grow Lavender, mint and parsley - they are all very easy to grow and lovely for other uses too. I can't imagine not having parsley and mint in the garden. If you get some seedlings in at this time of year they should flourish.

Interesting topic! 


Some other Workshop members that have experience with backyard chickens include @lvdm50, @timjeffries, @Darren, @Jackson and @Blawson. They might be able to add to @greygardener's advice.
