    To day, during the walk in the courtyard

    I saw her running fast

    At once the ducks followed him

    I went to see if there was any danger

    I saw that he was holding a Plastic cache to his mouth !

    I guess he thought he was a worm.

    I ran after him to get it out of his mouth.

    He ran into the hole , and I didn 't see it anymore.

    I guess he ate it !

    Is there a problem ?

    Chickens can swallow a lot of things they find, especially if they are dropped, since they are always competing with others to get the best food. People lose earings, and they will also eat pieces of glass, plastic, paper, or metal. Look inside her beak, just in case the item got stuck in the throat. There is no way to know if the item will pass on it’s own or get stuck somewhere, such as the gizzard. Make sure that there is grit or small rocks to help the chicken digest food, and just watch the droppings. I hope that it doesn’t harm her.
