    here are some pix of my 4 week old Plymouth barred rock roos. anyone out there able to tell me if this is normal? the first 2 pictures really show how extra large his abdomen is and how much larger than the other chicks that are the same age...AND how irregular the feather growth is... the last 2 pix is of another roo that doesn't seem to be as swollen, maybe just still in the "ugly" stage

    this first pic is of the 2 roos together, see the big swollen booty of the roo in the foreground (roo #1)

    You need to get some olive oil in him. Most likely its digestive problems. Maybe like make a mix of a yummy sauce. Like Pear sauce apple sauce and mix it in to it. Mix a fruit sauce with olive oil.
