    My gardens are all mulched with cocoa bean. I let my silkies out during the day and they love to pick in the garden but I'm wondering if it's safe. I know it's bad for dogs. They have been in it several times with no problems but it dawned on me that I should check with the BYC experts before I continue, as I'm a newbie to these ladies! Thanks!![​IMG]

    I personally would be cautious. I wouldnt think chocolate could be good for them, not sure if it will harm them though. Hopefully someone with more help will chime in shortly. [​IMG]
