My hens have an enclosed yard and coop inside of our fenced backyard. A cedar blew over into our fence into the back yard. My husband has sawed the tree off the fence and limbed it to get it out of the yard. Our hens are turned out of their enclosure and into the backyard. We noticed they are eating grass and some of the greenery and small branches of the tree debris left on the ground. I know the hens shouldn't have cedar shavings but don't know why. Is the cedar tree bad for them as well?
