Is it ok for chickens to eat seed that has not germinated yet in the lawn? Untreated grass seed
Yes, they ate all mine last year and they are still alive.
Quote:I just did a little googling and can find nothing that indicates that grass seed is toxic to birds, UNLESS it has been treated with something like Diazanon.
Thanks for your info
Mine scarfed down a 12 lb bag of it. Ahem.
After I had painstakingly spread it around the run in an effort to reseed.
So I switched to clover seed! Yeah! Then they ate the sprouts.
this spring dad spread 5 kg of the stuff on his lawn, and he accidentally left the coop door open...
when he got back from the feed store, it was all gone, and billy and his girls looked very pleased with them selves.
dad was not a happy man, they are all still alive now, so it isn't toxic unless it is treated.
