I am going to make my chickens a fairly large run(50'x15'?) which is currently being used as a garden and i wanted to plant some chicken friendly plants in it. I figured i would get another stalk of bamboo when i get it for other places. I figured it would provide shade as well as nesting oppurtunities while hiding the ugly excuse of a coop. First i wanted ot know if bamboo is poisinous to chickens. I would also like some other ideas for plants that chickens would like. I live in southern oregon so the temperature goes from 0-100F consistantly and get on average 15" of rain. Thanks for any imput!
