    My chickens, especially the Bard Rocks pick at the paint on the outside coop wall and eat it; they also will eat pieces of styrofoam or other kinds of small, odd items they find in the chicken yard. Also, I just noticed today that they've been eating rhubarb leaves. I've heard they're poisonous. Will these eating behaviors hurt my chickens?
