    Has anyone ever had any issues with Truegreen and their chickens?

    You mean the lawncare stuff? If so, can't say that I have as I don't use/deal with it, but if you're concerned you should talk to whomever applied it/is going to apply it as well as the manufacturer to get recommendations for how long you may have to keep animals off of treated areas. I'd probably add at least a week to whatever they say, but that's just me.

    Yeah they say just a little bit. It is just like nitrogen granules or something, but I didnt know they came and my girls are running around... they usually go back in when I have seeds, but I dont want to toss them out for them to eat and accidentally get the nitrogen stuff! blah... I have never had any issues before with it, but I was just curious. They stick to the trees and mulch usually anyways (truegreen usually doesnt hit those areas) so hopefully they will be ok.

    Google "truegreen msds" and read what it says...it'll help you make a decision. I wouldnt let my chickens on a lawn treated with it.
