    Does anyone know if I should be concerned with my pullets eating the Sluggo I put around my basil plants? I saw two of my chics in the garden and quickly got them away but wondering if this is a problem. The bottle reads safe around pets. Not sure if my peeps would actually it it or not.[​IMG]

    If it says "safe around pets", then you have nothing to worry about....
    Besides, Most chicks have a "don't eat sensor" and tend to stay away from things they should naturally not eat [​IMG]

    I've been meaning to ask the same question! I use Sluggo a lot, but didn't want to harm my girls.
