Uh oh! I just learned that, like horses, chickens are endangered by plants that are toxic to them. This really bummed me out. Somehow I pictured chickens as sort of indestructible, in eating whatever they find on the ground. It turns out ivy is one of the plants that is dangerous and we have a lot of ivy.
I guess this project is a work in progress. I spent the entire first spring and summer after moving from New Mexico to Pennsylvania trying to get up to speed on the toxic weeds here that endanger horses. At least the chickens will avoid these items unless there is no other forage available and that they have to eat a lot to be affected.
Anyone else know anything about plants that are toxic to chickens or lost any to poisonous plants?
