    I'm not sure what this plant it. It's growing in our yard and the chickens LOVE it! The Rooster actually ate some of it from my hand, well it was dangling but still..

    I would make a poor honey bee because i can't recognize one flower from another, but i will guess some variety of fleabane.

    Should be fine! It's a common weed, no poisonous properties I know of!
