    You can call poison control and see what they advise. The number is most likely on the bleach bottle.

    I'm not sure what you would look for. Hopefully she did not ingest much - I'm assuming undiluted bleach?

    I think bleach could possibly cause chemical burns in the beak/throat, depending on how much she drank.

    I would watch to see if she were eating and drinking normally.

    Oh they are quick and sneaky. Always wanting to be in the middle of things. One of mine just has to get into the "poop bucket" when I'm scooping poop and raking the run, she thinks it's awesome.[​IMG]

    How is she doing today? If she is eating/drinking and acting normal I would think she's fine. If it were going to poison her or cause problems, I think you would already be seeing signs/symptoms - it's been close to a day?
