I bought a beautiful salvia plant at a local plant sale, because it's supposed to be attractive to bees and butterflies, but when I did my research, it turns out to have psychedelic properties. Could it hurt my cats and free-range chickens if they munch on it?

You have Salvia divinorum? or a plant called salvia?
Ordinary salvia is sage that has been selected for its flowers. I have a couple nice big clumps in my garden and I have never noticed the chickens or cats being harmed by it.

I didn't realize there was a difference.  thanks  Mine is just "Salvia." The variety is blurred on the label, but it looks like "Forest Mire." Anyway, I'm glad it's not divinorum. We'll plant it out for the hummers, bees, and butterflies, today!  flower

Forest mire salvia (Salvia coccinea) has red flowers.  I have a pineapple sage that looks like it, has red flowers and smells heavenly like pineapple.  The hummingbirds like it.  I have grown cooking sage for the leaves.  Blue salvia can be a perennial in mild winter areas.  Take a look at all of the varieties of sage/salvia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Salvia_species

I believe that your red salvia is an annual in the North.  See: https://www.thespruce.com/red-salvia-scarlet-sage-salvia-splendens-2132144
