So I was just playing around with some soft clay on the bed with my chicken next to me. He noticed that I was playing with something and decided to eat a piece. He was too quick for me to even react. He took a piece and I tried to get it out of his mouth but he already ate it. Is this going to cause him to get sick or even die?

Welcome to BYC. I would make sure that he is getting grit appropriate for his age, either chick grit or adult grit, to make sure he is able to digest foods other than chicken feed. More than likely, it will pass through his digestive system. Make sure that he is drinking plenty of water, or offer it to his beak.
