My planned coop will be where there are iris now, as well as a clematis vine. I will be removing the iris, and planning around the clematis, but it has set me thinking about toxic plants for the hens. I've found several interesting sites, but they don't specifically mention whether or not a plant is considered toxic for poultry; also they don't specify whether a certain plant is deadly, or merely bad tasting. Can anyone help me with more specific information? Or more specific sites? I am particularly interested in garden plants, as I don't want to let them loose in the garden if there are too many dangers. I have read here that a number of chicken keepers like to feed their birds cabbage, and kale; and yet I have also read that the brassicas are toxic. I am planning to plant hardy herbs of various sorts around the outside perimeter. Does anyone know of species I should not plant? I would appreciate any help/advice that can be given.
