    She got ahold of it on my mothers porch and I read that the whole plant is poisonous. Do i need to take her to the Hospital ASAP? Is there anything I can giver her at home?? Im very worried for her safety. She doesn't seem to be having any reactions to it yet. Are there any signs i should look for?

    My understanding of lilly poisoning is that by the time you notice what happened it's too late (at least in cats). However, our kitty ATE a StarGazer lilly, which is a hybrid and suffered no ill effects except being a little stained.

    Nothing you can really do except watch and wait. Chickens don't have a gag reflex. It's going to have to come through the system.
