    My hens were out today in the garden, one of them got hold of a 4 inch strip of silicone sealant. They had them a couple of days ago but I managed to catch them before they swallowed them. Today, not so lucky. Will she be OK? She seemed fine for the rest of the day but I'm worried it won't digest and block her up.

    Well your option are vet or wait and see. Chickens eat all sorts of odd things, and are fine, so my guess is it will pass. Try giving her/them some bread soaked with olive oil to help lube up the digestive system.

    Good luck,
