    Haha, I don't know how else to describe the little guys other than they are little round balls. I don't know if they are just badly bred birds or if there is something wrong with them. There are three like the following picture. They almost look like they don't have a butt! It also seems like their eyelids are oddly shaped. They are super healthy although messy in the picture after eating their fermented feed. Very active little guys, solid poops, clear eyes and nostrils. Not quite sure what to think of the little guys. The second picture is one of the normal looking chicks. Any ideas of what's going on with them?

    It almost looks like it's sleepy and has bed head! LOL I would guess it's the breeding.....Like you mentioned.
