    Chicken Friendly Plants List

    1) Rose of Sharon. Oleanders. Camellias. Azaleas. Most shrubs and bushes. Hardy Geraniums. Hardy Fuschias. ...

    2) Garlic, Onions and Leeks. Potatoes. Squashes. Legumes. Chives, Mint, Rosemary, Tarragon and Sage. Rhubarb (they will occasionally eat the young leaves but don't seem to get ill)

    The following are some of the more common ornamental plants potentially toxic, yet unlikely that chickens would freely eat these.

    • Azalea: Rhododendron spp.
    • Boxwood: Buxus spp.
    • Buttercup family: Ranunculaceae. ...
    • Cherry laurel: Prunus laurocerasus.

    Chickens, pretty and sweet little things, aren't they? But they're not the um, brightest. I'd be afraid they'd still try to get at something that isn't good for them. What about planting rose trees (not bushes)? They're tall and the petals that fall they definitely can eat.
