So my backyard has alot of privet trees in it, and my chickens too. I have recently noticed that the chickens will jump up to pick single berries off the lower branches. Its actually quite comical. So I figured Id help them out and I pulled off a few bunches of the berries and threw to the chickens. They devoured all the purple berries, and left the green ones. Are privet berries ok for chickens to eat like this? Did I find a new seasonal food source? Or are these berries not good for my chickens. Its been a few days since I fed them the bunches, and everybody seems fine. I have probably around 1ton of the berries on trees in my yard, lots good grub? There is really no way to stop them from eating the berries, short of cutting down the trees which is not an option.
