We have lots of Saskatoon berry bushes growing wild by my house. We are removing other bushes. We would like to keep theses bushes but we will have no problem in removing them from our yard if they are bad for our chickens.
So what I would like to know is if these berries are bad for my chickens.

I believe Saskatoon berries are also called Service berries. Yes, they can eat them - here are several links...
