    Hey folks I have ran across many many seeds... I have Cockscomb, Different varieties of sunflowers, marigolds, Castor Bean(moleBeans) and money plant. I am wanting to plant all of this flowers around my coops this spring but I also want to know if they can eat all of them. I want to just pinch some plants and throw into the run. Need some help :) thanks guys!

    Hi. I know that the sunflowers and marigolds will be just fine. However, I believe that castor beans are quite toxic. Not sure about cockscomb or the money plant.

    I believe your chickens will be happy with your selection of
    seeds but I think you might want to check on all the seeds
    you plant for them but you have time I think .....
