    But it does not sound good for a chicken!

    I would give them a laxative flush if they were my mine.

    Epsom Salt: 1 tsp Epsom salts in 1/2 cup water, squirted down the bird's throat twice daily for two or three days.

    Molasses Flush: one pint (0.5 L) molasses per 5 gallons (19L) water, left in drinker for no longer than 8 hours, then replace with fresh, clean water.

    Are they the ones that contain kerosine? The package should say.

    Also check the crops as the wood may cause an impaction.
