You don't want them to eat any bulb type plants or their bulbs. They are toxic to chickens. Generally a chicken will know when a plant is toxic to them and will avoid eating them unless they are really starving. But just in case, I removed all my bulbs in the gardens that I allow my chickens to range in. There are other plants they should avoid, but the bulbs were all I can think of right now. :-)
I have a whole side yard full of lily of the valley... I hope they won't want to munch on those. I have plenty of other things for them to munch on, believe me... but I put the tomatoes in the front yard this year because I would like to eat them and don't want my chickies to get to them first.
