please don't forget that Warrigal greens are poisonous unless blanched.

It is completely untrue that warrigal greens are poisonous. They contain oxalates just like all members of the spinach family. They dont carry silly warnings at the supermarket saying you must blanch this or warning contains oxalates. Just treat warrigal greens as spinach and dont believe the misinfornation.

? I eat them all the time and don't think I've suffered any ill effects. Also the chickens seem to love them, are they poisonous for hens too?

My chicken love it as well, but in moderation. they know when they've had enough.
