    My 16 week old Araucana ingested a broken rubber band this AM! I'm sure she thought it was a worm, and all the other hens were fighting her for it. Does anyone know if this will become a problem for her? Hope it "worms" it's way out.

    I think it can get stuck a bit, my red ate one when she was about 12 weeks old, without me realizing it.

    I only knew it cause one day, she had some weird thing hanging from her rear, and she kept trying to look at it, or pull it with her beak and she couldnt reach it, it was kinda stuck halfway out, poor thing.

    So I got her and gently "helped it" along, it was one of those huge rubber bands and had been broken. I was just happy she was able to expel it. I am also sure she thought it was a worm.
