    Can they have what I peel off the outside? I didn't see celery listed on the treat chart either. I have given celery before with no ill effects. I was just wondering as I peeled one for dinner.

    I think you're fine. I can't find any info that celery root is toxic. A little info that it may rarely cause photosensitivity. (Increased chance for sunburn).

    I've given mine celery root and leaves. They don't like it. Just plain won't eat it. i guess it's one green they can do without. [​IMG]

    Thanks Imp! I really don't think I need to worry about sunburnt chooks.[​IMG] It is snowing here, so not much sunshine.
