So a foot long spear of an aloe plant broke off and I decided to see if my 10 week old BR pullets like it. I broke it into big chunks, and before I could even get my hand in the run, they were grabbing it! Gloppy globs of clear thick aloe juice dripping from their beaks like snotty nosed kids!! One made a strange squawk as she realized how un-ladylike she looked with the ooze hanging off her chin and face, but they greedily devoured it anyway playing keep-away with the pieces. I assume its safe as aloe has natural properties that are good for us. Any ideas or info about aloe and chickies??
