My husband and sons were target shooting and one of her BSLs, Annie gobbled up a dropped bullet before we could pick it up. She then found two shells and ate them too! Can those pass through her system? Can we do anything to help her get them out? Am I going to lose my favorite chicken? Please help!

Something you may try doing is soaking some bread in olive oil (vegetable oil works as a quick fix too)... My roo was pooping out blood almost 2 weeks ago from something he at in the yard and I gave him break soaked really well in vegetable oil.. By next morning he had completely stopped bleeding and have seen no problems since... The bread will be a good treat and the oil will give the bullets lubrication so they can pass... Worth a try!
