    I don't know if this is the right category, but I think my chicken at a staple! She got into the barn (again) because I left the door open, and when I came in she was pecking at some staples she got into. I am not sure if she actually ate it, she wasn't in there for very long. If she DID, will it harm her? Is there anything I need to do?

    I've never been in this situation but maybe ACV in her water. The acid might help if she ate the staples. Good luck.
