    I've read that too much grass clippings can cause impacted crop. Moderation is the key. It could be too much long grass that causes the impacted crop, so the shorter, cut clippings *may* be ok.

    The more I read about roosters, the more I am glad we don't have any, anymore. Yes they are good looking to have around, protect their ladies, but I don't want the noise, attacks, 24/7 mating. Oh and did I mention the crowing at evening, morning, mid-morning, noon, early afternoon, afternoon, 2 AM, 3 AM, 4 AM and on!

    Nothing to be concerned about. It's just a little extra calcium. It's called bloom.

    It looks like laying one of these eggs would be as pleasant as pooping sandpaper.

    If it is persistent, you may want to put some effort into figuring out what causes it and developing a solution. Otherwise, cook and forget.

    My roos only crow a little. They are fairly laid back and quiet. They are EO Orps though.

    I've read that too much grass clippings can cause impacted crop. Moderation is the key. It could be too much long grass that causes the impacted crop, so the shorter, cut clippings *may* be ok.

    As far as crop impaction. My birds get plenty of grass all lenghts. I would bet it would only be a problem it there is not enough access to grit. They love grass clippings. I give it to them by the wheel barrow full.
