    When my roo eats he just gobbles it down without putting it in his crop,you can feel all the food in his troat alll the way down even leading behind the crop.Has anyone else had a greedy chicken that has done this? He is not sick,when he was alone he was fine but when I put him with the others it happens.He is always hungry since he doesnt put it in his crop,and I wonder if he will learn that he will get food again.He acts like he never eats and I feed them ALOT my seremas are FAT,and he does this like if he is starving.The others let him eat but when he does this he just cant get any more food in.Any tips or similar stories?
