    I was trying to fix a leaking watering nipple but dropped the little steel ball used in the nipple and in no time one of my chicken got it. She is about 4.5 months old and looks ok now - it happened at about 5 mins ago.

    Do you guys think it will be ok? sob sob sob...

    Luckily they are round and smooth, so hopefully it should make it's way out of her eventually and not cause any damage..remember, chickens eat rocks for grit..[​IMG]
