    not sure if this is the thread I should be posting or in emergencies but I was out with my four chickens and decided to share my string cheese with them after I opened itabout three fourths of the string cheese was left when my Buff Orpington chicken jumped up grab the whole thing took off running when she stopped she swallowed the whole string cheese thing in one gulp afterwards she went and ate their nightly dinner that I give them before they go to bed she's acting fine but should I be freaking out she's almost 3 years old

    I'm guessing she'll be just fine. I got swarmed the other day when i had a small block of cheese out and one of my orp's snagged a big hunk of it when I wasn't looking. She swallowed it whole so the others wouldn't snatch it from her ( it was about the size of a medium grape) and then she came back for more (which she didn't get!!)
