    Because of the birds i have stopped using herbicides and fertilizers in the back yard. They are allowed to free rang on the weekends. I do have a few areas that have weed issues. Is there any herbicides that safe around livestock/poultry?

    I don't use herbicides at all, I pull them all by hand. I don't think if it is potent enough to kill a living plant it would be safe for your birds, though if you wanted to be sure your extension office in your state may know if you contact them.
