Today I noticed that one of our chickens (we just have two) was walking around with a red plastic cap (that has a ring attached to it via a short cord, all plastic) in her mouth. I tried to catch her to grab it but as she was walking around away from me, she sucked it down and swallowed it! Do you think she'll be ok?? Since she's just a chicken (and not an endearing pet) I don't want to spend $ on her at a vet, but I also don't want her to die. What would you do? Any tips on helping her pass the cap smoothly and without internal injury?
Thanks for any help,
