    One of my girls just escaped from the coop and I found her chowing down on worms in the middle of the poison ivy. What do I do? Do I need to worry about this?

    After I got her in, I came in and took a shower. Found a freakin tick on my belly. Bleh. What a day

    I've never heard of an animal getting poison Ivy. I think it's just a people thing. I don't think I'd worry so much about the chicken as I would your own skin.
