Hi Loz

I think the reason we shouldn't give our chooks bread is because it contains salt and salt should always be avoided.

However, I didn't know about the potato being bad for them - why is that KatieJane? Can it give them worms - or is it an 'old wives tale'? I gave my girls some potato peelings for the first time yesterday, now I'm feeling v guilty..... hope they'll be ok!

We have 3 hens, a black rock, a northumberland blue and a sussex white. We got them at POL May 2011 and they lay between 2 and 3 eggs per day. They are such characters, great fun and really bring our garden to life. They love 'scratting' around in the garden when we let them out of their run. We don't free range them all of the time as we know there are foxes in the woodland nearby.

I wondered if I could ask a garden/chicken question? Our lawn really needs some attention. I'd like to feed it and also apply some lawn weedkiller but I'm guessing the products will be toxic to chickens? Does anyone know if there are any lawn products which are safe to chickens?
