Hi, I've had a few sick pekin chickens over the last few weeks. Luckily they have all come good. I was force feeding a couple because their crops seemed empty after being locked up in sick bay ( a dog box) all day. I couldn't seem to tempt them to eat with treats, like corn or mince etc. However when I let them out after a few days in sick bab, and after been wormed (yet again) they seemed happy again and commenced to look around for food. Going to bed they had something in their crops but it wasn't like a goft ball or anything.
My question is, do all chickens have a full crop at the end of the day, every day? or are some just small eaters?
NB I'm currently using the blue bag of red hen chicken feed.
Appreciate your help,
