    I tossed some to my chickens and they wouldn't go near them. Check out the treat list in the learning center and see if it has anything.

    I don't know if it's "ok" but my girls ate tops as well as the thinned radish seedlings. Loved them!

    I have given both the tops and chopped up pieces of radish. My birds loved the tops. The actual radish went over like lead balloons

    mine weren't crazy about them, but the rabbits absolutely LOVED them- we don't like radishes so we grow them just for the animals.

    My chickens eat them but only if I chop them up.

    We like the radish too much to have tried giving it to them, but it seems that they enjoy the greens.
