My son has been feeding our hens bits of wild licorice plant from our yard and the chickens love it. I told him to hold off from feeding them it, until I find out if it's safe or not. I cannot find anywhere online discussing licorice plant and if it's safe for chickens. I've only read one ridiculously long list of supposedly toxic items for chickens that mentioned "licorice root" which isn't the same as these plants in my yard. I have a hard time trusting that list anyway because it claimed things like spinach, celery, and mango, etc were toxic to them (which they aren't). Please help ease my worries! Thank you!
