    I didn't know where to post this [​IMG]

    BUT

    I am putting trees all around my run, and one inside (which will be fenced off to stop hungry chickens from getting curious) , and was wondering if there are any trees/ bushes that are poisonous to chickens? I don't want them to get a hold of a leaf or berry of some sort and yack over!

    Thanks!!! [​IMG]

    Although I'm sure there's a list somewhere, I wouldn't worry about it too much if I were you. My chickens free range on 80 acres with tons of vegetation of all sorts. They must leave alone what's not good for them, because nobody's been sick.
