    Hi, my 8 week old orpington pullet swallowed an empty water balloon. It was small but I'm worried she won't be able to pass it. Thoughts?

    Keep a close eye in case her crop becomes impacted. I have read about vomiting a chicken but I don't know how to do it.

    Thanks. I wouldn't even know which chicken it was honestly. My boys were out with them and came running to tell me one of the orpingtons ate the balloon. We have 6 orpingtons and I can usually tell them apart, but my kiddos cannot, so they couldn't show me which one it was. I guess if one starts acting ill I'll know :/

    My hen (gold laced Wyandotte) vomited after ice cold water I gave her on a hot day
