Hi guys. I saw where someone else asked this very same question on here, and even though I'm pretty sure from their description that we have the same tree, they didn't post any pictures to help get a proper answer. I've tried googling, and I've tried image search, but I'm not finding anything helpful. I've heard people talk about "Choke Berries" but from what I have found, those come for a short tree with reddish leaves. My tree is massive and has green waxy leaves with no veins in the leaves. This is the big (40+ feet) tree in my backyard. This tree grows tiny black berries that drop all over my yard. ...and when I say tiny, I mean TINY. I have built my new chicken coop directly underneath this massive tree because it creates great shade during our hot California summers. I need to know if these little berries or seeds or whatever they are, are safe for my chickens before I put them in their new coop. They won't be going into the coop for another 3 - 4 weeks so I have time to put a light roof over the run if need be. Thanks in advance.
