    She should be just fine. Especially since I've seen chickens swallow a mouse whole with any problems. [​IMG]

    Silly chicken! I think the grit in her gizzard will take care of a bite of pinecone. And I'm glad I don't see most of what the chickens eat while they range. I'm pretty sure I know what will happen when the cat eventually leaves one of her kills in the wrong place at the wrong time. [​IMG]

    Well the squirrels in my yard eat the pine cones so I don't think it will hurt her.
