I don't want my husband to spray harmful chemicals around our home and since we purchased our chicks he hasn't sprayed...but we found some alarmingly large wasp nests on the side of our home yesterday and he understandably had to spray the nests and dispose of them. He told me that he picked up many of the dead wasp but certainly didn't get them all...well, my chicks ate them!!! I'm wondering if my chicks will be in danger or if any poison will be pooped out???

IMO, yes, the poison that killed the wasps will be ingested by your chicks. I would guess it depends on what he used and how much they ate. You should be able to log onto the insectiside company website and retrieve a copy of the Material Safety Data Sheet. (MSDS)
