EDIT: The poison is diphacinone, NOT bromadiolone as I first thought. Hi all, I have 7 Rhode Island Reds. They are about 17 weeks and will start laying in about a month. Recently we put rat bait (Tom Cat Chunx, active ingredient diphacinone) out to control the rats. This morning I saw that the chickens somehow managed to get a bait out of the bait station and were pecking at it. They had consumed about 2/3 of the bait. I don't know which chicken have ate the poison and which have not. Now I'm guessing some of my chickens will die. But for those that don't die, will their eggs be safe when they start laying in a month? Or should I just kill all 7 of them now and replace the whole flock? I really hate to kill the whole flock being so close to laying. But we have two small children and I don't want to take any chances. Thank you!
