I know that any question which begings 'Is a chicken clever enough...?' is asking for trouble, but anyway -
Is a chicken clever enough to avoid poisonous plants? I'm thinking particularly of fungi, as we have a lot of toadstools coming up in the lawn. I've been trying to dig them up when I see them but am fighting a losing battle. Can I trust the chickens to leave them alone?

So far they haven't shown any interest which is a relief, but they do love rhubarb leaves if they get into the other bit of the garden so they're not entirely sensible!
