    Does anyone know if mushrooms are safe for chickens? I'm talking the store bought kind, not wild ones.

    OK I think. Mine will eat them in leftovers etc.

    Mine won't touch them, wild or otherwise. It's been raining here for a week solid. Add the fact that we have cows and my whole yard looks like a mushroom farm. The chooks ignore them.

    Ours eat them. They like the fresh trimmings - stems mostly. And they'll eat them cooked as in leftovers. They don't like them when they're starting to age.
