    my hens love the hibcus flowers that grow around here. They have eaten all the blooms that they can reach and seem ok. I do not treat them with pesticides and I feed them to my fish and have for years. Just wondering if any of you have feed them to chickens.

    Our chickens eat them all the time.

    Also have ate them myself. The tortoises love them, the goats love them, the cows love them.... everything loves hibiscus flowers!

    I have eaten them also. The wild iguanas here will strip a bush in an hour. Just want to check, it makes me feel better that some else has done it. I'm sure mine get in more that I know just know if it was I would have some major thinking. We have quite a bit of hibcus.
