    I'm not exactly sure where to put this question but I was looking up cemari chickens because I found them to be absolutely gorgeous, and this thing kept coming up for "chicken pearls". Does anyone have any idea what they are? They look like gall stones or something of that sort to me. Can't find any info on them, just places trying to sell them.

    I realize this is a SUPER old post, but I ended up on the same strain of research and found this page. Interesting that while some "pearls" may, indeed, just be carved stone, the authentic version may very well be digestive... Masses? Not sure what that would mean for the individual health of the bird as analogous human conditions, such as gall stones, are symptomatic of improper diet, but intriguing from a person
