    My chickens get a Chance everyday to run 'wild' in my yard. Today I caught my roo Dexter pecking a mushroom. Can these wild mushrooms hurt my chickens or is this and ok meal/treat?
  2. Depends! How is Dexter...generally unless you are very experienced, I'd avoid those shrooms...

    there is a certain mushroom that grows in cow poop on humid evenings. It has a purple top with redish orange streaks radiating from the center of the top. CAUTION: these are extremely hallucinogenic.
