I have a small flock of four who have the run of my front yard near Portland, OR. I've had two of them for a year and just added another two last week. Two days ago my kids were eating cherries out there and later I saw my hens pecking at the pits they had spit out. I saw my ~2yo Blue Andalusian, Ziggy, eat a cherry pit. Not knowing if this was OK, I gathered up all the pits I could find and went online to see if I should worry. I saw many postings in various places that said cherries were fine for hens. But yesterday I noticed that Ziggy sounded funny. Instead of her usual bawking, she was sort of moan-wheezing. I didn't think about the cherry pit at all and since she seemed content and active I decided to wait and see. Today she still sounds funny and now I can see that she is not eating. This morning she did not go near the sunflower seeds I scattered, and usually she runs for them. Later, I scattered her favorite treats and she poked around but let the other hens eat all of them. I had a sudden thought that she may have a cherry pit stuck in her craw. I picked her up and felt around for signs of a small lump where it should not be, and I could not feel anything (plus she did not like that at all). She's still laying every day. Any advice? Other ideas what the problem could be? I have no idea how to help her.
