I read that citrus is not good to feel your flock. Ok - why??
We're newbies and haven't even purchased our chicks yet.

How about Aloe plants any idea if those would be harmful?


We're about done with our coop and want to fence their yard. We also want to be sure that our future gals don't have any harmful temptations in their area.....

Thanks in advance for any and all your helpful advice. It's greatly appreciated..

I am not sure but I have Aloe and my chickens never bother pecking it but they can't reach them either because I keep them on a stand on my porch. (the aloe not the chickens)

None of my birds ever liked any citrus fruits. I also have citrus trees in the yard(most chickens are totally free range).. they leave the trees alone.. except for one tree, for some reason the chickens found it edible and defoilated it(the worst offender has been sold so it's recovering now, no problem). None of the chickens seemed affected by eating that tree either.

Don't have aloe.. but do have various succulents.. have to keep them outside of the yard where the chickens are in- apparently most succulents are very delicious. Turtles find them delicious too BTW. (the succulents that is!)
