    [​IMG] I gave my chickens some grass this morning and I didnt know that hubby had sprayed it with round uo - I got home about 6 hours later to find the grass gone - they love it and ate it all [​IMG][​IMG] - and all 7 of my hens were in their coop ( which they never go into except to lay eggs) all huddled in a corner. They had some obvious dehydration - it was hot here today and they are twitching their heads - I gave them some fresh water with acv and pedialyte in it and after they all started drinking - I gave them some yogurt with oatmeal and layer crumbles - which they gobbled up - they seem a little improved, but I am worried sick!!!

    Also if they do ok should should I discard the eggs they lay for the next week?

    They might make it. Wild birds are exposed all the time. [​IMG]

    They should be fine if the round up was dry
