My chicks love rose petals as much as worms and will try to pluck then out of each other's mouth. My rose bush is about empty so I decided to give them rose of Sharon flowers since hibiscus is used in tea I thought it would be fine. The first chick took a bite and the head chick gave a loud warning and they wouldn't eat them anymore! How on Earth does a hen know what is poisonous!??!! I read it's safe for humans but not for cats and dogs. But I couldn't find anything about chickens.
