On Dec.23, I was cuddling my beautiful Rhode Island Red hen, Big Momma, when she suddenly spotted my ruby stud earring. She plucked it out of my ear, and I watched in horror as she turned it over in her beak, then swallowed it. She is a dear, dear girl, who raised two broods of 10 each this past season, completely free-range. I have put her in a cage and am checking her droppings. Is there any way to stimulate her gizzard to clear? I am certain that the earring is in there with all the gravel. The earrings were a wedding gift, and the pair is worth about $1000. I do butcher my own chickens, however Big Momma is the best chicken in our flock! Any ideas???!!!
