My ducks might of ate weed and feed?? is this okay!???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have two 1 year old Pekin ducks and they are always being nosy and getting into things. I wed and fed my grass last night at about 7 pm and they where in bed already. I ran my sprinklers in the morning at about 6am, and the ducks came out at about 10:30am- they immediately go and eat the grass. Is this safe?? the weed and feed was most likely soaked in by the sprinklers but I'm nervous they will get sick!!

How are they now?  I am just seeing this.

 

They may have problems with it.  

 

I would add a tablespoon of charcoal per quart of drinking water for them tonight - it's supposed to help absorb toxins.  Make sure they have plenty of water to drink.

The Weed Killer should not be an issue if it was dry before you watered it , if not dry you washed it off and shouldn't be an issue . It is unlikely the Fertilizer would bother them , lol if it did there would be dead ducks all over every Golf Course . It is more of an issue with large mammals like horses etc to much nitrogen is harmful to them .  

They were the good old days because we were young then !
