    Mutant Earl (Hemingway Cat) the stray I feed knocked down a bag of raisons I left out and the pullets ATE a TON! Their little lopsided chests are huge. Should I be concerned? Or will the next Egg layed taste of rum raison? (just kidding about the rum part) seriously, I think the one pullets crop is the size of a golf ball or a lacrosse ball The girls are 6 mos old and only the BPR lays eggs the other two are SLW and not yet laying.

    I think they'll be OK. Lots of birds eat raisins, and they are fed to birds. The amout is a little disconcerting. Keep an eye on them, that's a lot of fiber and sugars. Make sure the crop goes down and they are pooping.
    Good luck

    Imp- If they start a sugar high- take pictures.

    Will they start acting like Captain Jack with Rum from Pirates of the Carribean?

    Thanks for easing my worry. Normally, I try to use moderation but I guess Mutant Earl and the girls seem to have an understanding. He must be working for them now!!!

    He is a good cat but a stray and I have 4 former strays inside already - He is content to sleep in the hay between the two coops.
