Bamboo leaves and even the young shoots are fine for chickens to eat (some varieties are pretty yummy for humans, too).

mine love the stuff!

Fortunately I am trying to get rid of mine in the garden to make way for raised beds. Before digging the roots up I cut it down to ground level and put all of the canes in the walk in run, (I even cable tied them to the sides so it looked nice  :unsure:!). They have stripped them bare, I also lobbed the roots in which they have spent days digging through pulling out worms and eating little green shoots. I haven't seen any ill effects!

They are also good for Panda's :)
