    How is bird food toxic to slugs? Do you just spread it close to the plants? Michael Posted by: yarrow@sfo.com yarrow@sfo.com peninsulapermaculture

      So are chicken layer pellets similar to Sluggo (iron phosphate
      pellets), which is sold as a nontoxic (to pets and wildlife) snail
      and slug remedy at about $5-10 (est.) a pound in the U.S.? What's in
      them? Do birds eat them, or do you need to hide them (as with Sluggo)?

      chicken layer pellets are fed to laying hens. This really works and
      is very inexpensive. A 50lbs. bag is about $12.00 here. Good luck,
