    My 8 week chicks found a cigg butt and I was trying to get it from them, but then they took off across the yard and by the time I got over to them, the butt was gone. I looked all over the ground and couldn't find it so I think she might have ate it. What do I do? Is she going to get a bowel obstruction? I'm very worried she might die.

    I wouldn't sweat it. I panicked when my barred rock hen ate 6" of para cord and a 1/4" nut and washer, at once. She was about 6 months old when she did that, she's a year+ now and is happy and healthy.
