    Morning folks,
    I am curious if anyone has dealt with a wild cherry tree. There is one in my lot. The leaves when wilted are poisonous to cattle. Just curious about the danger to chickens. Anyone with expierence with these?
    Thanks,
    Chris

    I have some here and my birds don't eat the leaves but will eat the cherrys and they are fine, course if ya have them growing in a chicken yard and nothing else green around they may eat them .
