can you over feed 5-day olds?
You should always have food available 24/7 for babies. But sometimes they do become little pigs and stuff themselves. If it becomes a problem you can take away the food for an hour or so, giving the crops a chance to empty. I wouldn't worry about it though, many babies do this.
Quote:What do you mean?
are you force feeding?
and why you ask??
What are they symptoms that makes you think full crop.
Because naturally the crop may look full (stick out on the RIGHT side , just below the neck) and can appear big and hard.
However, this should lesson and be gone in the morning when they first wake up. So check it then, and if it is not gone, repost
well- lots of questions, lets see... i ordered 3- chicks to be mailed to me . They sent 10 aditional cockrels, i amm used to having 3-4 chicks at a time , this bunch is ferocious!!! cant keep there bowl full. I picked severale up today and the crop is fuller than i am use to! Just want to cover bases!! Thanks
Certain breeds have bigger more obvious crops than others. They can feel really full and its perfectly normal. As long as they seem healthy and they aren't crop bound, they should be fine.
thanks everyone sounds like it will be OK
