    I have a huge holly berry tree that I would love to share with my buff orpington chickens, is it safe? What about the clippings from my indoor house plants (philodendrons)? Thank you so very much. xox

    Holly berries are toxic. The other, don't know.

    They are not their favorite food, but mine eat holly berries in the winter. They are a common wild bird food source in the winter time when more palatable foods are not available.
