Wild Hawthorn berries

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a few large wild hawthorn tree on my property.  Are the berries safe for my chickens to eat? 

I have read wild birds eat them and they are used in alternative supplements for their antioxidants.

SSOOOO I'm assuming they are safe fl .  But if any has any expierence with them or have chickens that eat them all up and aren't dead, it would be great to hear from ya.

Thanks!

Loving my mixed flock.

Certainly my wild birds eat the hawthorn berries.
You can use them to make a tasty jelly (for humans).
