    Im wondering about this? Celery is not completely safe for bunnies, unless they've been chopped fine... The strings can cause intestinal blockage. Could this be possible for chicken crops?

    I had not seen celery on the no-give list, so I chopped it up and gave it to my girls. They ate it. I also have been giving them the radish greens out of my vegetable garden and they really seem to enjoy these too. I am thinning my lettuce patch later and plan on giving them some of this. They also get any goodies from the house that I can round up...apple cores, corn cobs, popcorn. I would have to believe that Meal-worms are their favorite, though. [​IMG]
