    We just got backyard chickens and I started letting them out of their run in our yard. Do I need to worry about them getting poisoned by the unknown vegetation? We have a lot of vines of this type they like to peck at. Thanks for any advice. [​IMG][/IMG]

    I wouldn't worry about it. As long as they have plenty of vegetation to choose from, they should be able to figure it out.

    Thank you! Well they do have a lot of vegetation but we haven't weeded that part of our yard so a lot of it is vines. Otherwise they get compost and chicken feed in their run. They seem to enjoy being outside so much. [​IMG]
