    We want to fertilize our lawn, but the chickens free range on it during the day most days. Is high iron fertilizer meant for making the grass greener okay to put out or will it hurt the chickens?

    Quote:If it is the granular form I wouldn't want my chickens eating it. Either the fertilizer or the iron. Iron in large amounts is toxic. Can you use a liquid and water it in well?

    Good luck
