Our Sex Links have asymmetrical chests

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


It's hard to tell & impossible to get a good picture of but at least two of our sex link hens have much larger right breasts. It's odd.

 

 

We figure it's because they're production hens & weren't bred for their looks. We still love the goofy looking girls!

That's probably the crop.  The size will vary as they eat (fill 'er up) and digest (empty the tank).

You learn something every day when you got chickens in the family!  So they are "filled up". <the husband>
