Chicken Swallowed A Nail

from the Chariton Herald-Patriot, July 7, 1927

     Recently Atlee Winsor noticed one of his prize Minorca's rather dumpy, and upon investigation found a shingle nail protruding from the body just back of the leg.  The nail was removed and the chicken regained its good spirits and appetite and was soon as good as ever.  The nail must have been swallowed and forced its way out in that manner.  Atlee certainly has a fine bunch of chickens and an ideal place in which to care for them.  He hopes to flood the market with eggs this winter when they are almost 50 cents per dozen.
