    We are planning on making a trip to Echo for Farm Day in a couple months and hope to get some edible plants to plant in our yard. Don't want to get anything my chickens are going to nibble on and get sick. I know I've seen a list like this somewhere(not the treat chart).

    Anyone know where it is?

    Thanks!

    Day lilies are safe,and high in vitamens.Not to mention can handle chickens daily scratchings.Cone flower,bee balm,penstomen,black eyed susan,canadian thistle,coreopsis,are all safe and edible choices.[​IMG]
