    Hi everyone! Just got my chicks and got my coop set up. I am hesitant of putting my chicks in the coop just yet due to a tree that hangs over it. I have no idea what kind of tree it is but it has bluish/black berries on it. I dont know if the berries are harmful to the chicks or not and Ive tried to research what kind of tree it is with no luck. I know birds eat them all the time but wasnt sure about how they will be for the chicks. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. How old are your chicks? do they have access to a run or are they free range? Maybe you can include responses to these questions in your post in this forum - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/11/raising-baby-chicks where the experts can advise.

    Best wishes

    G’Day from down under cfaircloth89 [​IMG] Welcome & Congratulations!

    Do you have a Facebook Account? I had a tree in my back garden that I was not able to identify via Google and research so I posted a couple of pictures on FB and had an answer within minutes.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
