    I have an herb garden with a good patch of horehound that is threatening to take over it's neighbors. Since I'm going to have to cut this herb back anyway and since I already have a pretty good supply of dried horehound, as well, I wanted to see if this herb was safe to throw in my chicken coop and let the girls have at it. Thanks in advance for any advice!

    You could probably put it in the best boxes and coop to keep any flies away. They may not eat it, but it would still serve a purpose. I do this with the mint that is taking over my backyard and I has really helped. Smells wonderful too. I don't think it would have any negative effects on them, and if it did, they wouldn't eat it.
