    My 9 month old easter egger rooster ate clear tape approximately 30 minutes ago. It was the clear tape, the kind you use to wrap presents. Should i be worried? What should i do? Please help!

    How much tape did he eat? I'm guessing that if it was just a little bit, and that if he has access to grit, that it probably won't be an issue.
    But, I do want to be clear that I haven't had this experience, so I'm not certain.

    Best of luck with him.

    It was only one little piece but he is a house chickens so he doesn't have consistent access to grit. The biggest thing I'm worried about is chemicals in the tape...
