    I have heard people say that chickens don't like nasturtiums, but are they poisonous? will they attempt to eat the fruit that has fallen on the ground and what plants do they absolutely love(like cats with catnip)!!![​IMG]

    I don't think nasturtiums would be bad for chickens. I've put them, leaves and flowers, in my salads.

    The list of plants that are toxic to chickens seems a little too much for me. It lists just about every plant in my yard. I'm in big trouble if they can't have a nibble of some of those plants. My girls are only 8 weeks old though. [​IMG]

    They ignore the dandelions while in the yard but when I pick them and feed them the greens through the fence they go nuts and eat them like crazy.
