Foods Chickens Should Not Eat

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello my fellow chicken lovers :)

I recently picked up my chicks, it has been a couple of years since I had chickens. I found my book, however, somewhere I had a llst of foods chickens should not eat. I was wondering if anyone knows the site where I can find it? Looking forward to spending many hours enjoying my chickens. So far I have 4 BO, getting Barred Rocks and GLW   Thanks

 This may explain a little more about chickens being beneficial in the garden.

Cary mine don't eat the leaves, that's the poisonous part, they eat the aphids, and the fruit itself.
