    I read somewhere on this forum that grape seeds are toxic to chickens. I don't think they ate very many, but what should I do? [​IMG]

    Well it never hurts to pray. I doubt your chickens will be hurt by eating a few grapes unless they were sprayed and even then I wouldn't worry. Always mke sure your birds have lots of fresh clean water.

    Should we worry about the neighbor coming over to kick some butt?

    Idk, my chickens eat grapes all the time. Now, they are poisonous to dogs but I dont think they are to chickens.

    Mine have been eating grapes for a week now with no ill effects. Are they really poisonous for chickens?

    The second my chickens see grapes, they go CRAZY -- they jump up and grab the bag right out of my hand.

    I feed them grapes all the time. They're fine -- they play Grape Soccer -- it's fun to watch. I also give them popcorn balls, which they LOVE. And they play Tether Lettuce all the time. Tomato football. And they love cantalope and honeydew melons. I figure if they eat it, it can't be too bad for them. I've had no problems.

    The last time I had chickens, they ate a bunch of seeded grapes (they liked to lounge under the vines) with no ill effect.

    I intentionally feed my chickens grapes. They love them when they are frozen! [​IMG]
