Best time is when rain is not too much BC of diseases. in fact dry season is the best if u can irrigate. during periods of high humidity, routinely spray them with systemic fungicides. use at least 2 different systemic fungicides with different mode of action, tank mixing each with a contact fungicide.

It is also important to note that during the dry season, stubborn pests like whiteflies, spider mites, leafhoppers etc can poise a problem. Using overhead/drip irrigation and insecticides like imidacloprid, methomyl, Tihans, chlorfenapyr, emamectin benzoate, buprofezin etc will help keep them at bay.

I don't think they can. They may pursue and eat few grasshoppers but for leafhoppers? Those pests are too fast for chickens.

In addition, they will scratch the soil and destroy plant roots.
