will they eat the white pellets and get sick? I have the menards lawn food, 30-0-3 (I think) that I would like to put on the yard...

It is mostly nitrogen (the 30) and is probably not good for them. I suspect they will eat it since they pick up small rocks and grains of sand and such. Would be safer (and cheaper) to compost their chicken poo and use it as a fertilizer.

Pen them up. Put your fertilizer on the lawn and water it in. Don't let the chickens out again until the pellets have dissolved and soaked in.
