    I believe that one of my chickens consumed this Organic Preen Weed Preventer and I am really afraid that she might be poisoned or something!! If someone could tell me what to do or any advice would be helpful! Thanks!

    What are the ingredients? Not much you can do now but wait and see.

    Hi @Melovechickens

    How is your chicken?
    Do you have a vet?

    I recommend that you call the number on your package or the one listed in the FAQS on their website (Prosar Corporation toll-free at (888) 208-1368) http://www.preen.com/products/preen-vegetable-garden-weed-preventer

    There are a few "flushes" that can be tried for chickens, but without knowing how they would react with the ingredients in the weed preventer, I would be very careful. Most likely the least one to react would be using the activated charcoal flush, but do some research first.

    Let us know how it goes.
