Flock Focus Friday, 2/5/16 featuring a Cozy Legs Flat Panel Heater GIVEAWAY!

 
Here in Northern Connecticut, we have had an unusually snow-free winter, for which my flock and I are tremendously grateful. But, after 60°F temperatures on Thursday, we were treated to 8" of snow and temps in the teens. As Hartford native, Mark Twain once said of New England: "if you don't like the weather, wait a minute." Please enjoy some of the photos and feel free to enter the Flat Panel, Radiant Coop Heater from my newest sponsor, Cozy Legs!

Pendulous Crop in Backyard Chickens

The crop muscle expands when food, water and grit are ingested. In a normal crop, the contents are then moved into the next section of the digestive tract, and the crop shrinks back to its resting size. When the crop muscle loses elasticity and fails to empty and contract to its normal size and shape, it is said to be "pendulous;" when the bird walks, the crop sways back and forth.
My Partridge Cochin hen developed a severe case of pendulous crop a few weeks ago, the severity of which required that she be put to sleep. There's not much that can be done to prevent pendulous crop, but its progression might be mitigated in some instances. This article is dedicated to sweet Bertha's memory.
Bertha in October, less than 3 months before developing pendulous crop.
