    I know this sounds crazy, but I was out getting eggs and I swear one of my hens passed gas. Is this a sigh something is wrong? There were only a few hens in the house at the time, I checked rear-ends all seemed fine. They had yogurt and oatmeal today. Is this normal?

    [​IMG] I don't see why not! Since oatmeal has a tendency to give me gas, why not chickens!

    Haha! Barncat, those chickens look like they're leaning away from him because they know what's going to happen.
