    Will there be any ill effect on my chickens? I just got a bunch from my co worker.

    Mine eat them. They don't like them as much as the ripe ones but they are fine.

    Mine like them, I have another bushel left since the hard frost. Tomatoes are also thought to be good in helping chickens to digest fibre from other sources, and are used to acidify the crop during fibre impactions...

    Mine eat them, too. The little devils jump up and grab bites through the tomato cages. ARG!

    Mine love the ripe ones so I gave them some green ones. I haven't been home yet to see if they ate them or not.
