My little brother loves to shoot his pellet gun around the back yard. Mom and Dad had to get him biodegradable pellets because of how many would end up in the yard and garden. I know he won't shoot any chickens (because I'll always be watching) but I'm concerned about free ranging chickens eating the pellets. He also has a red rider bibi gun that shoots metal pellets. I'm more worried about what might happen if they eat those. Thanks for the advice!
