We lost a chicken last year several days after fertilizing and watering the lawn. Is there any lawn fertilizer that is safe for chickens to roam?

You can spread a layer of organic compost over your lawn each spring. As it breaks down it will provide nutrients to the roots of your turf. Or, you can use a water soluable fertilizer such as Miracle Gro. It is a foliar feeder and since there are no granules, ducks, chickens and other wildlife won't ingest concentrated doses of the minerals. Hope this helps!
