    I am anticipating an emergency with this. What should I look for and what can I do to minimize their reaction to ingesting lawn fertilizer and pelletized lime. I already know what to do to the husband who let this happen, so am trying to focus on the girls welfare. HELP!

    As a start, give them lots of water and try to get them to drink it as well as you can.

    Not sure how long it's been since they ate it. You might want to get them to regurgitate anything in the crop, if it's still there.
