Help with chick crop question please

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I've just noticed one of my week old chicks has a really big crop. I've not noticed it in any of the others before and it wasn't like it this morning, is it something I should worry about or wait to see if it goes down?

Thanks sjp. I noticed before they went to bed that two of them were like it but when I let them out this morning they were all fine. I guess they are just greedy babies! :D

that's normal the crop should be full at bedtime for chicks and adults, it's just more noticeable with some birds more than others. as I keep naked necks I see it more so only tend to notice if a bird isn't showing a full crop
