    my curious little silkie was hovering around me while i was weatherproofing the new chicken houses. for two seconds i put my bowl and brush on the ground while i moved the house...and the little booger tucked right in. he only got one 'mouthful' but im guessing thats enough to do damage...what do i do?? i ran himinside and coaxed him into drinking fresh water but what bout the stuff he ingested?? can i do anything else or is it a wait and see???

    not sure what to do, I'm sure it only got a little bit, I think I would try to get him to eat, say bread, something that will absorb the paint and help it to pass and some water. Not a good thing to eat, but I bet he will be ok. good luck
