    I just noticed that a couple of my girls have a long saggy Waddle, Only on 1 side though? Actually looks like a really long stretched out ear lobe? This is a new finding. My girls are about 5-8 years old. Is there a problem? Normal? Please help me- not sure what to do - Thanks

    Is it puffy or swollen?

    I have a pullet that has one long waddle and the other side is very short. I don't know why, it has just always been that way.

    As long as they look healthy, that can be normal. I have one hen with a longer wattle than the other and it looks so funny. Besides, since they are old, and you have been able to keep them alive that long, everything sags with age. [​IMG]

    The waddles seem healthy (and so do my girls) it was very strange as a couple of them have sagging ones ? they are different ages so I figured maybe something was wrong or they were getting sick? Thank you for the response- I'll keep watching.
