    Hi, it's a little yellow flower that is poisonous to humans and pets, was wondering if it would hurt chickens. We would really like to let them out of their run, but the green part of the flower sticks around till mid summer. Has anyone had any personal experiences with these? we can't just fence off the flowers, they are everywhere.

    Thanks so much, again, just wondering if anyone else has had issues in the past with these

    Hi there,
    I did a quick search for you - yes they are poisonous. www.keeping-chickens.com also has a list of other poisonous plants.
    BTW - welcome! [​IMG]
