    Safe for chickens? I let mine out of the pen to look around a little, and they scarf them down like I would a T-bone. Just wondering.

    I go out by the road and fill a bucket with them and give them to my chickens, doesnt seem to hurt them. Save on feed costs! [​IMG]

    I buy mine organic dandelion greens. The chickens love them. Tried to raise some in the garden but didn't get a very good crop. Wish I could find a free source nearby.
