South of Waco...
I have several young pullets, about 2.5 mos old.
The last few nights, when I have to manually move them all from roosting on top of their old coop (for the babies...) into the big coop, they all seem to have a swollen or full crop, to some extent anyway. Everyone seems to be pooping, they have been free range for about a month or more, so they're not new to grass.

That is normal. It should be empty the next morning.
