Abstract

PESTAB. Studies were performed in which chickens were fed zinc phosphide, a rodenticide, to determine the effects on non-target animals. Female domestic fowl were fed either 14.0, 21.0, 31.5 or 47.2 mg/kg, observed for 4 weeks, then killed and autopsied. The mortality rate was somewhat dose dependent. Fourteen mg/kg resulted in 12% mortality; 87% of the birds fed both the 21 and 31.5 mg/kg doses died; 100% of the birds fed 47.2 mg/kg died. Weight gain in the low dose group was normal after the first week. Autopsy results showed that some cell infiltration occured in the lungs and gizzards of treated birds, but all other organs appeared normal.
