    I'm thinking on using some herbs in my landscaping. Does anyone know if I should stay away from certain ones pertaining to my chickens?

    Do you mean because it could harm the chickens? or because they will eat them? I don't know about the former, but my chickens chewed my parsley down to the nubs, and left the basil, fennel and any onion family (leeks, shallots and garlic) alone.

    Sounds like a good question for the easygardenforum

    Herbs are fine around chickens. The only thing is you might not have any left after they are done..lol
