A bucket or something at least. As has been said already, chickens are destructive. Not only do they want to eat all your vegetables, they are going to want to dust bath. If not provided for, they will solve that problem by digging a hole in your grass or garden to do so. Similar to the kiddie pool for the ducks idea, we have a small sandbox setup for ours.
Side note - I love your garden, great job!
