    I have seen violets listed as safe and they are of that family. I know they are people edible the species is Viola cornuta. I just wants to know if I need to keep my chicky away from them. I'm lucky and if she is free ranging if I tell her to leave it alone and shoo she'll 90% of the time move off.

    And return when you are not there. =D=D=D=D. But in all honesty, I do not know of anything presently eatable by humans to be bad for chickens. I can be wrong of course. I know of many things chickens can eat that we CANT .. I believe your concerns come from dogs not being able to eat some things we enjoy.. ( chocolate, raisins, grapes,, and there are a few more.) HOPE THIS HELPS. [​IMG]
