i was thinking of planting raspberry bushes along a fenceline, on the outside of a chicken run. I was wondering if they will destroy the bushes or eat the leaves that they can access. i have little knowledge of chickens so far.

thanks.

Planting from what? Raspberry seeds? 5 gallon pots? How established are they?

They will also learn to jump and hover so they can eat berries.
