    Mine have never bothered with them. I wouldn't try feeding them to chickens as I don't think they would eat them.

    Not to hijack but can old dried mums be given to chickens?
    What about other common ornamental flowers?
    Asking because have heard marigold petals are fed to enhance yolk color. I've got other petals year round available from dead heading in my garden and tree blossoms... :idunno
