    With my chickens
    My hen had a peck size bite of a hash brown- not a whole potato. I have heard potatos are bad will she be okay? And can i grow potatos in my yard where chickens could eat them?

    I have heard raw potatoes are bad for chickens, but cooked are fine. Anyway one peck shouldn't hurt her.
