    Don't know if its an emergency. I was cleaning up his poo when he raced forward & grabbed the tissue in my hand, tore a large piece of & swallowed it before I could stop him. Will he digest it? [​IMG]

    It was just cheap thin stuff....

    Welcome,tissue paper dissolves when wet,so he will be fine. One of my roosters grabbed and ate tissue paper,and cardboard and a hair tie that he pulled from my daughters hair. None caused any problems.
