    Our fig tree is starting to ripen so I have included the figs as part of their diet, is this ok? I hope so because I have no way of keeping them out of it. Also they really seem to love Blackberries, are those ok to feed? Since my duck just died I am worried about what the girls (6 chickens) are eating.

    Yes, figs and blackberries are ok for chickens to eat.

    what about dried figs? I got an abundance from my in-laws and I'm not a fan of them outside the cookie. I'm thinking its a texture thing. :confused:
