    I've read that you shouldn't feed your chickens eggplant leaves. Is it really that bad for them? I've been letting my 5 week old chicks roam around my greenhouse. I've still got some peppers, eggplant, onion and swiss chard growing in there and they just love the eggplant leaves. Is it not safe for them to eat? They seem to enjoy it. I may need to stop bringing them in there or pull them if it's that bad.
