I've been reading about impacted crops, so I decided to go feel my chickens' crops so that I would know what normal crops should feel like. I read that they shouldn't feel too firm or too soft. When feeling my chickens crops, they felt pretty darn firm to me. None of my chickens are acting sick at the moment and I had JUST fed them a treat of tomatoes. They are eating mash (they are 9 weeks old). That being said, they have access to an outside run with a lot of little pebbles, so I have not been giving them grit. So my question is this... if I feel their crops right after they eat, is it supposed to feel firm? I guess I will know later when I feel their crops when they have not just eaten (and or they start acting sick tomorrow!), but I was wondering if anyone could answer this sooner. Thanks!!
