    [​IMG]These chicks are much bigger in their abdominal area than what I've ever seen before...pooping, eating and drinking normal.

    Can you get a picture of one of them in a natural, standing position? It can help put what is seen here in perspective and can determine normal/abnormal.

    Hello! Could just be big chooks. As long as eating, drinking, and poop is okay then there shouldn't be much to be afraid of. If you're convinced something is just too wrong you could take them to a vet to get them or one looked at.

    Hope this helps![​IMG]
