Edible Flowers For Your Chickens


Chickens can eat these flowers.  People can eat these flowers, too. At my farm camp we got to eat some of these kinds of flowers, like squash blossoms.  They can be very nutritious!  It is good to feed your chickens these flowers so they don't get sick.

  1. I love growing edible flowers. They're pretty and we can eat them and so can the chickens! You can also put the flowers on cakes or cupcakes or add them to your water or juice for a pretty garnish.
