    I would like to put my soon-to-be-had-chickens in a chicken tractor and move it around our yard (can't let them out of the tractor; too many cats in our neighborhood!), but our lawn isn't really a lawn. It consists of clover, some grass, and other miscellaneous weeds. Can I still let my chickens eat in the yard freely, or would they eat something poisonous and die?

    Chickens really won't eat poisonous plants unless they are starving. Allow food and water at all times. Welcome to BYC. [​IMG]
