    I've only had my chicks for a day and a half now and I noticed this afternoon an enlarged crop in one of them. She likes to lay down and sometimes in the corner. I know sometimes this is normal...but I wanted some opinions just in case.

    Was the chick mail order? If so, it's her first meal, very hungry. Just being a little piggy, shouldn't be a worry. Welcome to the flock! [​IMG]

    Okay, thank you! I was definitely thinking that...I now realized some of the other chicks are slightly enlarged. I'm just a worrying new chicken mama! [​IMG]
