    I saw a few of my younger pullets eating mushrooms from my lawn yesterday. The big girls ate them a few times and havent gone back to them. Should I be worried?

    Not too much. Birds usually know what to eat and what not to eat. In most cases the worst a little bad mushroom can do is an upset stomach or related issues. Most little mushrooms in the grass are either edible, give stomach issues, or are hallucinogenic.
