I was curious if anyone has ever found any info on rat poison and eggs. We have rats living in a vehicle that needs a rebuilt engine. My husband put pellet rat poison under the hood to get rid of rats before we have it towed away. I know rats will carry bait to other locations and store it - so I am worried they may carry the bait by the chicken coops, thus causing a chicken to eat the bait. If one did eat it, would it kill the chicken immediately or would it still be able to lay eggs - passing the toxin into the eggs and causing our family to get sick from toxic eggs? I know it is far fetched, but I am worried about eating the eggs with poison in the vicinity.
