    I accidentally threw a peach pit into the run with some peach skins and one of my hens swallowed it. I tried to stop her but she had already swallowed it. It took a couple tries for her to get it down. Is this something she will be able to digest? It was pretty big. Anything I should do? Thank You

    Not really much you can do at this point. Keep an eye on her to make sure she doesn't have any problems. About the only thing I know that could be done would be surgery on the crop to remove it......They dissolve bones when they eat live small animals....I guess that's about the same???
