I have sunflowers growing and was curious if the flower itself is harmful to the babies (2-4 weeks old). I was wanting to put one of the heads in the brooder to give them something to play with

I asked google your question. Below is their answer.

Sunflowers also produce sunflower seeds, a tiny nutritious wonder that when fed in moderation, can have many health benefits for both you and your flock of chickens. ... It would sometimes take 45 minutes to an hour for our large flock to peck off all the seeds. They would also eat the fibrous flower head and the leaves.Jan 15, 2013
