the sponge was off a chair that'd been sitting outside. will it hurt them?
How large of a piece?
If it was several small pieces, I would think it will most likely pass as long as she has access to grit and plenty of food and water. If it was one large chunk then keep a close eye on her.
Agree with Wyorp. And be sure to keep them away from styrofoam, like coolers and such. My chickens happily will eat a whole cooler if I let them! I caught them eating random little pieces of stiff white plastic that blew into my yard. Apparently, they'll eat anything. (Yes, I feed them plenty LOL)
They will peck at anything. I had a bright idea to hang heavy rubber mats for a wind in a section of the run this winter. Thinking the black would absorb heat and make a nice area to get out of the wind as well. That lasted about 2days, they were eating the mats (they were having a great time), so....had to remove and rethink.
It was several small pieces, but I don't give them grit...
They will most likely pass or have already done so. Some people don't provide grit and let their chickens find a source in their yard/run, so she has probably found some small pieces of gravel that will be sufficient.
