I make a habit(good or bad) of picking up my chickens and giving them the lovins(moms name not mine) every once in a while. They seem to enjoy it. My girls are 19 weeks old and havent for the most part produced any eggs yet with the exception of three small ones I found on the floor. However this afternoon, just now in fact I picked up one who usually keeps pretty much to herself. When I lifted her up, I thought something was hooked on her leg!! Shes heavy!!! I bet close to twice as heavy as the rest of my girls. Shes the same size and everything though . She was sitting in the next box this morning squawking and caterwauling like you wouldnt believe. Could she be backed up with eggs or something? Im just concerned that shes ok.
