Ivy poisonous?
« on: February 08, 2009, 16:56 »
The girls have a new enclosure and there's loads of ivy in it. I saw them pecking at it (and the berries) this morning... they weren't eating loads of it, just having a peck or two and then wandering off.

Is it poisonous to them? I know it is to us... so even if not to them, could it come through their eggs that we eat?  :blink:
Trying to live the good life.. getting there slooooowly...

I have Ivy around and my chooks take a peck now and again, they seem to be fine. IMHO they will avoid stuff that is naturally poisonous.
