    I looked out my window to see my pullet doing the worm dance and the flock chasing her. At first I thought it was a noodle I tossed into the yard this morning but after a few seconds I realized it was a sillyband from one of my girls. By the time I got to her she had managed to choke the thing down. Should I be worried?

    She was doing great this evening. Free ranging, chatting with me, and behaving like she usually does. I hope she will be ok through the night and it passes. Her breathing is a little rhaspy but still normal not labored.
