We have 4 chickens that live in the back garden. One of them

Customer Question

We have 4 chickens that live in the back garden. One of them seems to have gotten very large, fat, almost, and usualy walks around with her head tucked into her chest. She spends most of her time in the coop. She wasn't always this way. Any ideas?

They eat the chicken corn, they don't really like the pellets. We usually have a cabbage hanging up that they eat, and they have our leftovers, like vegetables, porridge etc.
