    Hi, I'm Sue and I recently put 4 new chickens that are 16 weeks old out in their coop....I let them roam free on our property during the day but I recently saw them under our bottlebrush bush pecking at the flowers that have fallen to the ground. I know bottlebrush is poisonous for some animals but I don't know if it harms chickens. Can someone tell me if this plant's flowers are harmful to chickens?
