Mud patrol

In winter, let them into the garden. They will plow for slug eggs. But remember to keep a fresh bucket of water handy, as they may cake their bills with mud -- if it's too far to their usual water source they can suffocate. Patrol the garden for fresh eggs, because there's always at least one especially casual mother. When ready to plant, fence out.
