    I have noticed that my Blue red laced wynodottes poop has some whole feed pieces in it. Its chickens scratch. Does that mean theres a problem with her crop?

    Do you give her grit to help her grind up her food??

    They free range so I assume they get what they need for grinding the food right.

    watching, wild and free!
    the birds must access to an outside run that will give them access to various stones, pebbles to help them grind their food.
