List of FORBIDDEN Foods for Chickens

As a backyard chicken keeper of 12 hens one of my joys is to give them treats when I get home from work before I let them out to "free" range for an hour or so. After I had one of my girls get sick and die, I started to think about what I was feeding them and to my horror I had given them AVOCADO. I have several avocado trees as I also have a small fruit tree farm, and who would have thought they could be SO bad for hens! Is there a possibility that there could be a list posted that contains FORBIDDEN foods for chickens? That way people can avoid them when giving treats. From now on I keep an eye on my avocadoes and take care to pick up any when fallen on the ground and I also no longer compost them as the girls love the compost pile. Thank you so much for all the great info on your web site!

Won't grow!

Hello, I have received two cuttings from a huge dragon fruit and they won't grow. I see plenty of roots. Both clippings keep trying to flower and the flowers die before maturity. What am I doing wrong?
