I want to plant alot of marigold seeds in front of the perennial garden. will chickens kill them or leave them alone? are they poisonous? I have the list of toxic plants but I am stupid with scientific names lol
* Well-- Mr. Purdue's commercials claim that marigolds are what give his factory hens their lovely golden color, if that helps any-- 'course that's to have them catch the consumer's eye- & not necessarily for any long-term health benefits. I imagine the blossoms have a lot of caretinoids. . . .
Yeah I thought I read that too that they put marigolds in the feed to help yolk color to be produced as yellow. I have heard of people eating marigolds as well. I have one of those 1/4 pound boxes of marigold seeds that I plan to spread in the yard because I love marigolds. I have a box of wildflower seeds as well.
