    I know this sounds ridiculous and foolish and like I don't pay attention to my animals, but I just found out that my mother and sister who smoke throw their cigarette butts on the ground. I don't know if my ducks, geese or chickens have been eating them but it's only been recently that they've been throwing them out on the ground. I know they won't digest, but will they pass through their digestive track? I'm very very worried. Please any answers will help.

    Just be sure to monitor them very closely. Hopefully it won't hurt them too much.
