I would be hesitant to feed chickens food I think is toxic though: mainly leftover baked goods, if they are of the mainstream, wonderbread category. I used to pick up food from a food bank in Austin, TX for a children's program I ran for homeless kids. All the baked goods were free, and after a while, I realized that lots of them never go bad, scary, as they are so full of preservatives, and have no nutrients whatsoever. I don't think I would give that stuff to a chicken! But maybe some old sourdough bread.
When propanoic acid is infused directly into rodents' brains, it produces reversible behavior changes (e.g. hyperactivity, dystonia, social impairment, perseveration) and brain changes (e.g. innate neuroinflammation, glutathione depletion) that may be used as a model of human autism in rats.

Also, is it as bad for chickens' livers as it is for human livers? or is it just comfrey root that is dangerous? I should do research, but thought maybe some has real experience with their chickens and comfrey. TIA
