    looked out the window and saw my DH (d is not for dear this time) spraying miracle gro in the yard. My birds free-range. He got mad when I asked him to stop. How long b4 I can let my girls out in the yard again.? This was yesterday. I've ask him not to do this b4.

    Got one even worse...mine sprayed Round Up!!! [​IMG] Either can't be good for them. I was going around all day trying to keep them out of the areas he sprayed. After a few days, and especially after it rained, I thought it was ok and let them do their thing. This was about a month ago and they are fine.

    I suggest you do what I did. I made a deal that I would manually take care of all the weeds if he would stop spraying. It's a lot of work but I don't want all those chems in the yard around my chickens and KIDS! Start using organic types of fertilizer and tell your husband you will be responsible for fertilizing your yard.
