    The big queen palms got a trim and before I set them out to be picked on, want to make sure they are safe.[​IMG]

    I was searching for my post regarding the edibility of palm seeds to see if the image links were good still, and I noticed your unanswered similar question.

    No one seemed to have an answer to my question either, but from what my research revealed, palm seeds are edible, and my chickens didn't die after eating them. Check out the link that I posted in response to my own question: link to my original post .

    So far, I have never seen a chicken die from eating plants. They seem to know what is good or bad.

    When we had date palms, the chickens would pick at the dates that fell off the trees.

    We used the palm fronds to build the chicken coops. They were free and lasted for years.
