I can feel it in her little crop. It's not gold. It's the cheap anti-allergenic kind. My fault. It's the post of the earring I'm worried about for her. I have 36 chickens and of course she's the pet. Hand-raised and tame as can be. That's why she got the opportunity to be so close. Forgot I was still wearing those earringsIt is only the welfare of this 'tweeny' chick I'm concerned about. Dang! Anyone had successful experience with this kind of situation?
