I was going to ask the question on here to see if chickens would be poisoned if I plant castor beans near the chickens to keep moles away. I did some reading online and spoke with my mother who says that chickens won't touch the castor bean plants, but other barnyard animals might. I plan on planting some castor beans this spring to keep the moles away. Has anyone else here had any experiences with castor bean plants and their barnyard animals????
