    Is it ok to feed grass clipping from mowing the lawn to chickens?, also what about rhubarb leaves. I have lots of both and don't want to waste them if chickens will eat tham. Thanks

    Grass is alright I think because they just scratch through it but rubarb is bad for them :)

    Rhubarb leaves carry a poison. If you free range they may peck at them but they know enough not to eat them. Putting it in with them to eat and they might just eat them.
