    We have a ton of Japanese knotweed on our property. Is that something that my chickens can eat? It is kind of like bamboo. Dont want them getting sick.

    Hi Cindyandal! [​IMG]

    We have 2 different types of knotweed growing here and our chickens and guineas love to eat the plants and especially the seed-heads when they ripen. We've never had any of the birds get sick from eating either part.

    Hope this is some help!
