    Give them all you want, mine eat wild ones until their bills are stained. I guess it is good for them, mine are all healthy and happy. Same thing for mulberries, pears and mama's figs which don't have a chance to get ripe.

    Quote:I agree our chickens love our blackberries and will pick them right off the vine. They also like figs especially if we open them a little so they can get to the sweet part inside they compete with our dogs.
