    Hello, I have a lot of plants around my ducks’ pen and they absolutely love laying in them and nibbling on them. They love eating the geranium flowers I have planted. They also love to lay in the fern and merigolds planted their. Are these plants safe for them?

    I've found that my ducks leave the poisonous plants alone, which includes my irises, tulips, and there's some bindweed (morning glory) in the field.

    Disclaimer - I have no idea how factual it is, so please do find second and third sources before assuming it's toxic or not toxic.

    TOXIC PLANTS & FOOD LISTING

    Bird Lover’s Beware! ~
    Here is a list of some of the more common plants that are poisonous to birds, dogs, cats, equine and other domesticated livestock as well. This list is not comprehensive by any means so please use common sense. Plants that are listed as poisonous to humans and other animals should absolutely be considered deadly to birds. Please make sure that these plants are removed from your bird's surroundings for their safety.

    Animals do not have the enzymes required to process some foods so things that may be OK for humans to eat (chocolate, avocado, alcohol, caffiene and carbonated drinks, etc) are very deadly to your companion birds. Please see our Healthy Bird Diet listing for more info on a proper diet for your companion birds.
