    They are all 3 growing and seem active enough. They're eating and drinking. The swelling in their crops went down but didn't go away. Their crops are still too large but are soft and squishy feeling. The 2 that I think are white rock crosses aren't really growing any feathers on their butts or bellies. One of them seems to prefer to sit and scoot around. Sit...take a couple of steps...sit. Repeat. But if I put my hand in there to do anything, he has no trouble getting up and running around just like the others. It's just in his...free time, for lack of a better word...he does the sit and scoot. No one is pasting up and as far as I can tell all are pooping, I certainly need to change the bedding often enough. Seems like everyone's breathing is fine. But there's just something that I can't quite put my finger on that seems...off. Just have this feeling that something isn't right. I don't know. We shall see.
