    Will he be ok? It was a good sized flat shaving, he picked it up and ate it!! What should i do??!!! He is about 4-5 weeks old. I was sitting watching them when he picked it up and *gulp* just swallowed it whole!!

    Yes, he's probably bored. My chicks did that all the time, and never seemed to have a problem. You can give him something like a small tree of broccoli to shake about.
