    Just wondering if it is alright for my guys to eat these. I have a bag of them that I froze, plus my woods are stocked right full of the plants, so I don't really have a choice either way come summer. It's a berry that comes off one of the dogwood plants.

    Also, what treats do you guys feed your ducks and chickens. I have been trying new things, but just curious.

    thanks

    Assuming you are talking about Cornus Canadensis, should be fine. All sorts of animals, including birds eat it in the wild.
    Here's a link...with more info than you probably ever wanted!
