    Should I worry? I've been out of town all week and had a friend watching my birds. I had the bag of lime on a pallet with the other feed bags because my garage gets wet. When I got home and let them all out, I noticed lime was mixed with their feed. Everbody seems fine and normal...?

    I think that if it is ag lime and mixed with their food it should be fine.

    I sure hope so. They are still ok this morning. My friend thought it was DE which is why it was mixed with their food...
