    I am having a dead avocado tree taken down on my property and I was wondering if I could use the chips in my chicken run? I know that avocados are a BIG no no for chickens but would the wood chips and leaves from the tree be bad for them? I was wondering because it's free and why waste it when I can use it right? Any info is greatly appreciated!

    I think you have asked a great question...........but I do not know the answer [​IMG]



    I would not use them - the leaves for sure as the birds will pick at them............the chips, just cause I am a worry wart that way.



    Hopefully someone who knows the answer will see this. [​IMG]
