    Hi,

    We have some Cat Mint plants that we want to move near our chickens. Is it safe for them?

    Thanks,
    Mitch

    If that is the same thing as cat nip (I think it is) We put some around our coop and they left it alone, but then we got ducks and they ate it all and are still alive [​IMG]

    In fact I think they love it more than the cats...
