I bought some cress seeds today that I plan on growing for my ducks and chickens, but I was wondering if it's actually safe for them to eat? I've seen a lot on watercress but not normal cress, so if anyone can offer advice I'd really appreciate it!

I’ve tried reading about it, and I know they can eat watercress. They are fine eating “most greens” and no mention about normal cress being poisonous or anything like that. So according to me, I say it should be ok

Cress is perfectly safe for ducks and chickens. I grow it periodically in the ponds stream for the ducks to eat. It’s at the bottom right in the pic. Don’t let it get too leggy as my ducks don’t like the stems as much. AE9F7F85-8932-48C4-8858-62CC1B5E2404.jpeg
