    Does anyone know if the invasive weed garlic mustard (Alliaria Petiolata) is toxic to chickens? I don't see it on the list of toxic plants on poultyhelp.com but the area where I'm planning to put my run is overwhelmed with the stuff so I want to be as sure as possible before I release the chickies.

    My guess is they will be fine. I may have toxic plants all over the place too, but free range and trust the birds won't eat whats not good for them.
