    Anyone else have chickens who are big pigs? I took these photos of mine the other day when a few had crops so big they walked funny. My red sex links are especially piggy. In their defense, they are pullets and still growing and filling out. They also steadfastly lay an egg a day apiece despite the shortening days. Sorry for the fuzzy photos, I was using my phone. Is it bad that I can't help but chuckle at them when they look like this?

    The one in the back is standing normally. See her HUGE crop?

    They are so friendly it is hard to get photos. Here she is again closer. Her feathers can't even cover it!
