Will a chicken overeat??

Hi, Just read a post about a swollen crop.

My question:  Will chickens overeat, I thought I read somewhere that chickens won't overeat.  Unlike horses who can/will founder.

No, they won't overeat.

I have a speckled sussex that is a pig.

If I let her she'll eat till her crop is ready to burst.

Former keeper of hens, life isn't much fun without chickens... but

lau  Are all SS this way--I have one of those too! It will be freezing cold, rain, whatever, and Delilah will be out in the run scratching around for food. She's chubby, but I don't THINK she's overweight?
