Hello. My name is Jessica and I have backyard chickens. I purchased my chickens in the fall and I actually recently lost one. She was our favorite. Since her death the chicken she was raised with has literally doubled in size in like a weeks time! I brought her inside bc she was attacking the new chicken I got to replace the one we lost. Not just pecking order stuff but full on chicken fight. She wouldnt let the new one in the coop and i found my new one out in the rain, completely soaked and it was like 30 degrees out. So i brought the older one inside to see if separation from the flock would calm her down. Well since I brought her inside I used one of those small mason jar feeders and put over a weeks worth of food in it for her.... She ate it all in 1 (ONE) day!!!! Is she over eating because she lost her sister or is it something else. But like i said she had doubled in size since the other one died. Seriously she will morph into a turkey if she keeps it up!
