    I was wondering if chickens will eat garden plants that have 7dust on them? I have had to dust my tomato plants and my chicks love to go in the garden when I let them out for a hour or 2 a night..I don't think they will but want to make sure before i let them out of the run.. Thanks in advance..

    It's extremely dangerous to let you chickens eat Sevin, wasn't meant for eating, just killing bugs. Can you fence of the tomatoes, just in case?

    Yes I can fence them off..I was just wanting to make sure. And have someone opinion.. My dad and I are in argument about how much room they need to run during the day.. He says keeping 7 8 week old chickens in a 4'x8 run is ok..I say it needs to be double that size..
