    [​IMG] I just moved into my cottage several months ago and the lawn was sprayed with weed suppressant just prior to that. Do I have to worry about free ranging my girls next year in late spring? My three cuties are only nine weeks so will not be running about until then. I am concerned for them and whether their eggs would contain some of the chemical if they eat the grass. We have very wet weather winter thru spring.

    No. I wouldn't worry. It will be a long time by then and the grass will be new, never sprayed.
