    We dont know what this plant is but we have lots of it geowing on our property. We try to give the chickens lots of freah greenery we've cut, to scratch through and munch on as we cannot free range yet. And todays yard work including cutting a ton of these down. We want to know if rhey are safe for our chickens please.

    I don't know what it is off the top of my head but my chickens don't eat it.

    That said, they'll eventually eat everything if they don't have a choice.
