    I fed my chickens cherry pits last night not knowing that they were toxic. Thankfully they are all fine :) i don't want to make that mistake again! What are some things that are toxic to chickens and ducks? And are onion blades safe for chickens? Thanks :)

    i think onions are fine for chickens to eat however i have read that they can taint the eggs and meat when they are fed a lot

    I recall there's a link on foods / plants toxic to chickens - type something like that in the search box and it should pop up.
