    One of my chickens died. A plymouth rock, I think. She ate a poisonous plant, but Mum removed it from the garden, so that's good. Now we are down to five. Perhaps I should hatch a couple of eggs?? Nah, Mum'd say no. But our coop was only meant for 4-5, so now that we have five I guess that's good as well. But yeah. [​IMG]

    I don't, but my mum does, probably. Why (not meaning to sound rude!)? But thanks.

    Sorry for your loss. Anytime we can help others out by telling them something that may be harmful to our birds, is a good thing. :thumbsup

    Thanks guys. I think it is called Datura, or something like that. So don't keep it where chickens can get it!!!
