    My cuckoo marans was on the roost this afternoon and I noticed how large her crop seemed....as I was looking at it it MOVED!! At first I thought she had the hiccups....then I realized chickens probably don't hiccup. OMG. It kept moving. Then I realized it was a very big frog or toad that she had eaten.....gross gross gross. I would so rather not have seen that. She didn't seem too bother but I had to leave...I would pick up a snake before I would touch a frog.

    I'm still freaked out. It was trying to escape....ACK. I have claustrophobia. I am not sure I will be able to sleep! She looked like a fat cheshire cat.

    Must have tasted ok, or else she wouldn't have put it in there. Hopefully, she'll swallow it down soon!

    (Wow, what a sight!)

    She must have jaws like a frog to be able to swallow something so large.

    Mine all love frogs, snakes, anything that moves and tastes good. Baby copperheads are a favorite, and they love tadpoles. I can't say I ever got to see their crop doing the rumba though! Usually they hit large items in the head a few times. Not that doing that would keep a frog from jumping for quite a while afterward...pithy comments anyone?
