Hardware disease is a seldom-discussed health risk to backyard chickens, but it's a serious, potentially life-threatening concern to bear in mind. The term, "hardware disease" is a misnomer because it's not a disease at all, but rather a description of various health complications that can result from chickens eating screws, nails, staples or other metal pieces found in the yard. Hardware disease is more aptly named traumatic ventriculitis, but that's just not as memorable, is it?
