Are rhubarb leaves poisonous to chickens? Mine have decided they're a delicacy.
Official answer: yes. Will they make your chickens sick? My chickens say definitely not. They skeletonize my rhubarb leaves every fall when they clean up the garden. And there are LOTS of different plants for them to choose! I think they are eating them for their anti helminthic properties. As long as your birds have plenty of vegetation to choose from, I'd not worry about what they eat. However, I don't think I'd purposefully put rhubarb leaves into a chicken run.
Thanks, they were just pecking away merrily themselves. I won't worry too much about it then.
