    Hey Forum,

    A few hours ago from the time I posted this, 3 of my chickens went inside the house, where there was Rat poison, because we're having a problem with Mice and Rats. The chickens came inside, and I'm predicting that they might have eaten the Rat Poison!!
    My brother came outside to the garage and he called me and told me that the door was open, the chickens then came outside. My brother is guessing they came inside when he came into the garage, and the Rat Poison brand is d-CON.
    Any help is appreciated :(

    Sorry i don't have any advise to really help. Hopefully someone will help soon. If it were me i'd ditch the poison and just use traps. Even if they don't get into it they will eat a dead mouse and it could possibly get secondary poisoning. Anyway i hope all is going to be well with your chicken.
