    I was shaking out some meal worms and the silica packet fell out.
    She grabbed it and ran and would not let go.
    She swallowed the thing whole!!

    Any thoughts or suggestions???

    A friend of mine has a son that ate some. Poison control said "no big deal" so hopefullly the same goes for chickens. Same kid drank diesel fuel once and had a thing for sticking forks in electrical outlets.
