    So I came home to look at the work my dh did on the coop (it's finally DONE!!) and noticed a lot of mushrooms growing on the ground in the run. I have never noticed these there before...so I was trying to dig them all up, but I would assume they would hurt my 6 week old chicks if they ate them right? The chicks are still inside the house due to the fluctuating temperatures here in CT...

    I think it is best to remove them. Some are poisonous and some are ok, but unless you can tell the difference, then just remove them to be safe.

    I had some in my yard and I said something to my son about the chickens eating them, he looked it up really quick and said they are not good and could be poisonous...so we smooshed them or pulled them out.
