    I occasionally give the girls some greenery that I may have hedged or clipped around the yard, weeds, etc. They love the green stuff to either peck at or hide in. This week was mostly strawberry greens that have completely taken over my veggie garden. I was just thinking though, are there any weeds or plants I should be clear of? That can be toxic to chickens? We had an all natural run at first but they pecked every maple tree leaf or oak leaf around so its bare now. Random rasberry weeds and alders. Is any of this bad? It seems to keep them busy!

    Generally your birds will be smart enough not to eat things bad for them, but there are exceptions I guess like Styrofoam etc. But when it comes to toxic plants they are pretty smart...
