    Hi everybody! My name is Bonnie! I am new to the backyard chicken website and I'm glad I joined. I have a question and if anybody answers it, it will be greatly appreciated! My chicken who is about 3 months old has eaten yarn and i had no clue of it.. Anyways, she's not walking she's barely eating or drinking she's making weird breathing sounds.. So I give her time alone, so then I check on her and I see one of her feathers on her beak.. I take it out then I see her bedding on her beak as well.. I take that out... Then I see some type of yarn string.. I try to pull it out like the others and I pull on it and it came out a little bit but not entirely.. So then I came to the conclusion that maybe that's the problem. Yarn is stuck in her throat. But I don't want to pull on the yarn because I don't want to hurt her... Somebody please help me! I want to help her before its too late!

    if you can pull it out gently, than do it.

    maybe the strange things she is eating are causing impacted crop.
