    I planted greens the fall and the bugs have eaten on the leaves of some real good and was thinking of picking these leaves off and giving them to my chickens but wasn't sure that it would be ok for them.

    As long has you haven't put any chemicals on them to treat the bugs they should love them. My chickens love collards, which I grow just for them.
     
  3. Agree. What kind of plant?

    Yes, chickens love collards, kale, spinach, grass, lettuce, all kinds of greens. And clover, alfalfa.

    Also your beet greens, mustard greens, etc.
