    I woldn't worry about it unless they're showing signs of discomfort/problems Lopsy was caught eating rhubarb leaves (definitely toxic!) last week and they both certainly had a go at the rhubarb last year, to no ill effects

    Every chicken we're ever had has always been very determined to eat Rhubarb leaves. They must be very tasty We've had to put mesh round it now as they won't respond to shooing away.

    As someone who used to use rhubarb leaves as 'flesh' when playing with her toy dinosaurs, then licked her fingers (I was probably biting my nails!), I would say they taste incredibly bitter, with a definite sharp tang! Maybe they like it?!
