    Hello Everyone! My 4 month old rooster swallowed a bent thumbtack before I could get him to spit it out. Is there anything anyone can recommend doing or should I take him to the vet???

    If you can take him to a vet that may help.
    There is not a lot you can do yourself, if it was bent and the point was flattened you may get lucky and he will pass it.

    @Wyorp Rock thank you for replying! I have been watching him like a hawk and have seen no signs of any abnormal behavior or symptoms. I'm hoping it will pass through!

    I do hope it goes on through. Keep an eye on him.

    Let us know how he does.
