    One of our hens ate a gecko a couple of days ago. Now she is just laying around. Not eating much but drinking. Any thoughts?

    Mine eat chameleons, small geckos, toads, and small snakes all the time with no ill results.

    correction: It does make me ill [​IMG] , just not the chickens!

    Thanks for the info. I wouldn't like eating them either! lol. She's not acting right and it's the only thing we could think of.
