How can I tell if my Chickens are fat?? I have a Black sex link hen and she seems to have a big crop all day and everyday?? Any advice?
Is her dress too tight? Just kidding. Chickens don't carry a lot of extra fat on the chest or breast area so what you are likely seeing is food and water waiting on the right side of her breast to go through the gizzard. If you know how much a particular pure bred chicken should weigh you could use a set of scales and compare your findings to the standard, but the more accurate way is to feel of your chicken.How can I tell if my Chickens are fat?? ...
