How long after spaying weed n feed can my free range chickens go on the lawn?
How long before I can let my pet(s)/child(ren) out to play on my lawn once it has been treated?
Generally, it’s safe once the product has dried. However, we would suggest to keep them off the lawn for a minimum of 24 hours (ideally 48 hours) as this will be enough time to ensure the lawn has taken up the treatment. Pets that may graze on the lawn (e.g. rabbits or even dogs) should be discouraged from eating any of the grass till after the first mowing (remove the clippings). Do not mow for 7 days after applying and do not feed the lawn clippings from the first mowing to pets or livestock.
Can i use weed and feed after mowing
It is best to use before mowing as the grass and weeds are longer, so you are going to get a better coverage. You can use it after mowing but a lot of it gets wasted on lawn clippings that remain in the grass. If those clippings are covering the weeds - then what is the point in using it? The best guide is to read the instructions by the manufacturer as they designed it to work via their instructions. But yes, it will work after mowing, but it is not as good than with longer lawn.

how long after spraying weed and feed can chickens go on the grass
After spraying 'Weed n Feed' on the grass, leave it for 7 days, then mow it before you put livestock on the treated area. For future reference, spray half the lawn and fence off if possible. The chickens can spend 7 days on the untreated area, then move the chickens to the treated area, and spray the untreated area. Otherwise just lock the chickens up for 7 days and do the whole area. Remember to mow it after the 7 days have passed.
I've given on the hose-on thing, it is pointless and doesn't work. I'm just gonna mix it in a watering can and do it that way.
Does anyone know what the ratio is of feed and weed : water?
The product is not coming out of the bottle connected hose water comes out perfect but spray nothing
I have put the holes in the bottle even did a second time with a skewer and nothing
I've tried it with finger over hole and off hole and nothing
I have hosed my lawn four times for nothing
What am I doing wrong???
I dont think you are doing anything wrong. I think the dipensing device is poorly designed and simply does not work.
I resorted to tipping it out into a watering can and dispensing it manually (after doing the maths).
I now have skin rashes and one arm has dropped off (joking).
After reading a couple of other feeds, I removed the lid (it does screw over the plastic tabs) and found the feeder tube had dislodged from the cap. The feeder tube sits inside the container and fits into a tube which is part of the hole the hose water sprays over when the hose is connected. this obviously means using a tool (pointy nose pliers or similar to pull the tube out of the container and re-insert the tube into the tube receiver part in the lid. The other option is to take it back to the retailer and get them to fix it or replace the product. the instructions say to shake well, this would provide the perfect opportunity for the tube to dislodge.
Can it be used when grass is wet?
No. I find it best to use in high sun. You need to do it to bedry and with no rain coming for at least a full 24 hours. If it's wet you are diluting the weed side of it. If you want to do a wet application use the weed and feed granules. Yates do one, so do Hortico(same company). Then you wet the lawn first leave for two day and water in. Only spray your lawn with it in spring and mid winter. To many times you will make a weak lawn.
