    Ok I have both chicken and quail im looking for
    Hedera helix. English ivy
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedera_helix


    Im getting conflicting advice ....

    Can be used on aviaries to give shade. So yes

    Another site poultry no...

    Quail bobwhite love it nest in it eat it....yes



    Problem is I have it growing on GRASs so most places I site coop it's in or ground cover and before I go digging it all out For no reason


    So is it or is it not poisonous to poultry. And quail (valley/californian)

    Thankyou

    It's not considered much of a risk because it's only toxic if large quantities are eaten.
