    Just wondering how many of us out there have a collection of single earrings. My 6 wk BR nabbed a pearl earring right out of my ear today! I hope she didnt swallow it- but I couldnt find it in the grass. Lesson learned...only wear hoops? [​IMG]

    They can pull hoops out even easier. Hurts worse too.

    Our vet told me he had a client bring in one of her hens this summer because the bird had nabbed a $$$ diamond earring. They xrayed the crop but...no earring. So they sent her on to a specialist since she wanted them to open up the gizzard...ewww...

    You might get a really pretty egg out of her!

    No hoops. My golden laced wyandotte took the hoop earring right off my ear. It did go on the ground though.

    I almost lost a diamond earring that way! [​IMG]

    Keep in mind that if she's close enough to steal an earring, she's close enough to peck that nice shiny eyeball, too!
