hello. yesterday i noticed my rooster had a string of hay from his beak. i went right into the run to free the hay peice. i had a hard time chasing him, once i finally got him, he had already swallowed the peice of hay. is eating this safe? i have read that others here on byc have had chickens with a full crop. do they mean full crop of unusal stuff, or hay? is eating hay okay? could a chicken choke on a peice of hay? i watched him, and he seemed fine. i checked with him later that night, he was acting normal. your thoughts here are appriciated!! thanks in advance!!!!!!!
