I live in NW Louisiana and have tons of American Beautyberry growing around my property. Lately I noticed my free-ranging rooster eating this plant. I've begun cutting it and feeding to my laying hens. They love it and eat berries, leaves, and stalks. I've reduced the amount of laying pellets I give them and have supplemented with the plant. My question: Is this a nutritious supplement for my chickens?
