Left them alone for a while and then had already finished off all the leaves on the veges and still a bundle of the stems left. Went to cook and after i came back the string, the bundle of vege stems were gone. What should i do????? Obviously one out of 9 chickens swallowed it. Will she be okay? What should i do.


ft long string that was a half cm thick.


it looked like this, but this picture is scaled down a bunch.

Her girl lost her tongue because of string. They sell cages for treats that will hang, they are pretty cheap I suggest to buy one. Keep a lookout for what you read in that link as it is a possible problem that can come up. If it does, you can save it before it is lost.

woowooww THATS so friggin intense....yeah i was thinking on buying one of those, didnt really think id need one though. Although this time for sure Ill be needing one haha no moer strings..
