    At least that is what I call it. I don't know how else to explain it except that some of my banties have a very broad chest (with two what I cal "lumps"), and some chicks (5 weeks) have just a smaller "single chest". I think the "double chests" look like roos...Hmmm maybe I should post pics. I am just afraid that I have too many roos and hardly any hens...[​IMG]

    Are you seeing double chests or very full crops? If you touch their second chest, is it mushy? If so they are full of feed.

    I know what you mean-had one splash Orp cockerel who looked amazingly like Dolly Parton at one point, LOL. Take a look at the little guy:
