The last garden bed I grew rhubarb in, grew two great crops. Large luscious leaves both times. The first time it rained hard, they sat in the water which pooled around their bed for days on end, and the leaves and stalks wilted. They they grew back, and the second time the chickens accidentally sampled a leaf and decided they loved it. Just like that, the rhubarb had leaves one day, and none the next. The stalks wilted before I could harvest them.
Whenever I read some forum, I see something like "I heard.." or "What you should do is.." Unfortunately, it's common where "I tried this and it worked.." isn't so much.
One piece of "internet expert" advice I tried, was hanging shiny objects from my chicken coop in order to scare the birds away, so that they wouldn't share the chicken feed. So I dug out several old CDs that were of no value, and hung them from the corners of the coop.
