    My co-worker gave the five 3-4 month old chicks her brownie. It was one brownie broken into 4 pieces, eaten by the five chicks. I know chocolate is bad for them. Do you think I should be worried? They are semi wild chickens - I feed them.

    Anything I can do/ or signs I should look for to be worried about? Please help!

    Thanks.

    I don't think there's much you can do at this point, but they should be just fine. Make sure they have access to plenty of clean water.

    No need to freak out, they will be fine, lower your blood presure and stay calm. Going all Oprah on them will just make it worst.

    Quote:Did they have "pot" in them? Well, I guess I would just sit back and wait. Watch the birds and see what they do. If they get goofy and laid back then they were the special brownies, if they are running around like crazy then they had to much sugar, if they are normal, nothing to worry about.
