The green colored ones, and the "eyes" have solanine in them. It's toxic. But I think a lot hes to be ingested to have an effect.

I don't know about chickens, but ducks can have up to 60% of their diet be boiled potatoes with no affect on egg production.* So it is probably fine for chickens too.

Potatoes with green on them are toxic- the whole potato, not just the green part, so throw those out.

*Depending on breed. Some did fine on it and others did not.

Some ducks lay 40 eggs per year, and some 300. I'll just bet that breed matters! Also the rest of their diet, and the potato variety. It's really not simple at all. Some non-green potatoes are fine, but I'd put them in the same category as scratch and other scraps. Mary
