Thread Starter 
I have a chicken who is an escape artist. And i want to plant some flowers in my old garden which is by the chicken coop. But i have one problem, i don't know what flowers are safe or the chickens in case they get out and start eating them. I want to plant some pretty ones but are safe for the chickens. Any suggestions?

Lavender

Sage

nasturtium

Roses

Sunflowers

Marigolds

Violets

Echinacea

squash blossoms

Bee balm

These are some flowers that are safe and edible for chickens.

Will they leave these alone or devour them if given the chance?

The flowers I listed are edible so they would probably eat them.

Could you fence in your flowers, so she can't get to them?
