I'm relatively new to chicken raising and I am have a great time with the girls. We have six and each one has it's own personality and place in the coop. I've not been able to find a definitative answer to the question of dogwood berries being ok to eat? They ripen to a dark red in the next couple of weeks. The issue is the dogwood tree shades their run. If they are not healthy, I'd want to put some type of tarp over the part of the run shaded by the tree. Thanks in advance!
