    So far I've been blessed by good luck with my 1st time chick raising experience but one of my roos looks like he needs a breast reduction.

    There soft masses, he's eating and acting just like all the others but he definately isn't right, is this something I can do anything about, or should I just cull him early and check it out? Thanks, Sue

    He's fine! Dont worry. Many cockerel chicks seem to look that way. I'll see if I can find a certain picture of one of my splash Orps in his Dolly Parton Days.

    EDITED TO ADD PIC: Here you go-see that boy behind the screen? Does yours look like that?
