When is it safe to come out?

Alright, before everyone gets mad at me I want to assure you that this was not my decision. My partner decided to spray weed killer in my backyard. I was assured that it was not spread anywhere near the duck coop.
I have kept my ducks inside their coop and have not allowed them to free-range since the spray. I don’t know how long I need to keep them in there until it’s safe. It has been about two weeks now since the yard was sprayed, but we haven’t had any rain. The sun has been relentless however and our temperatures have been in the upper 80s and lower 90s. I don’t know if that makes a difference. The product says nothing about poultry safety either.

When do you think it safe for the ducks to come outside and free range in the grass?

I hadn’t cut the grass yet. I ran the sprinklers twice, let them out for a little bit, and then watched them for 24 hours. All looks good, but this will never happen again. Nothing is going to be sprayed out in the yard except natural fertilizers.
