    My chickens have discovered hollyhock seeds - and they like them! Are they OK for them? Should I save a few for winter treats?

    Hollyhock flowers are on every edible plant list I have checked - and the chipmunks eat the seeds. I don't think they will hurt the chickens. I'm just wondering if they might be beneficial to them.
