  1. SO i felt some of our chicens breasts and mostly the cold hardy chickens one breast is larger and feels full of water, our turken, who i am now very happy has no breast feathers, one is very large compared to the other and feels full of water. i felt some of the others and felt the sae., but when i touched the OEGB's i didt feel it, cant tell if its just cause they're not a fluffy but or what. I can only feel it in the fluffy butt breeds, any ideas what it is?

    A full crop?? Your chickens probably just ate/drank alot.
    Maybe look up the anatomy of a chicken to get a better idea. Particularly their digestive system.
