    I need to put some ground cover in my backyard and my chickens are able to roam through out freely. I was wanting to put down creeping thyme (thymus serpyllum) but wanted to make sure it wasn't toxic to my chickens. Also I live in zone 9. Any other suggestions are welcome :) Thanks!

    Have you done a net search on it?

    Personally, I'd not worry about it.
