I assume that you are talking about organic grass fertilizer, Justino!

I can understand why they'd eat what I've got. It's processed from "poultry by-products, feather meal, blood meal, etc." Really, it's the whole darn bird - probably, old laying hens.

However, I'm NOT going to let my birds eat it!!

I would lock them up until U find out what was used. Some grass fertlizer has many different chemicals! A good rain will help it soak on down.

I don't let our hens eat any of our grass clippings for at least a week or several good watering's after fertilizing. maybe I'm just over protective but half the point of raising chickens is to make sure we have chemical free eggs and birds.
