Hi.
So I have 5 Rhode Island Red hens.
I found a ball bearing in the coop and as I was taking it out, one of my hens picked it up and ate it.
It was a larger ball bearing.
I’m worried that something bad will happen to her.
What should I do?
I really don’t want to find my baby dead in my coop tomorrow.
Please comfort me.

Eek, hoping for the best for you! How big is a "good sized" ball bearing? The weight of it might concern me going through the delicate tissues. Fingers crossed for you over the next couple days!

Can I suggest you edit your thread title to be more specific? Something like "Hen Swallowed a Ball Bearing -How Can I Help Her?" I think it will help you to get more views, and hopefully advice, from people with the right knowledge to help you. :fl for your chicken!
