    I may not be able to get some until tonight, because they are a bit flighty, and unless they are chickens that will come sit in your lap (I do have some of those though:D) your pretty hard pressed to get them out of the run.

    Do their abdomens feel like they are filled with fluid? What do their combs look like? Have their combs turned darker?

    their abdomens feel very squishy.. I'm honestly not sure what it would feel like if they were filled with water:confused: their Combs are bright red, and they are not lethargic or anything.. besides the swollen abdomens, they seem fine.

    Pictures of the birds would definitely help.
