    I want to plant some flowers around the outside of my run, perhaps some marigolds, but I may venture off on a tangent of other flowers too. My chickens may have some access to them through the fencing. Does anyone know if there are any toxic flowers I should stay away from?

    I have several plants/flowers I've read are toxic to chickens.Someone must have told my birds, also, cause they never ate those plants! The do have SOME survival instinct. I say plant what you want.
