    Hi everyone!

    My rooster pecked at an ear plug till it was slightly smaller than it's full size, and then wolfed it down! Will he be able to pass it through his system?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    What goes in... must come out.

    I don't know about chickens, but my dog eats them all the time. They come out the same as they went in. There probably won't be a problem. No sharp edges or anything...

    Most likely it will pass, nature has designed the outlet bigger than the inlet so it should go through.
