    Do chickens enjoy calendulum petals as much as marigold?
    I'd rather have calendulum in my small flower garden, and want to be able to offer flower heads to the hens.

    I'd go with the Calendula if that's what you like.

    I would think the chickens would prefer it too - my logic here is it is less aromatic, so probably a milder flavor.
