I have my plants in a "Strawberry planter" but two of the chicks seem to have grown into roosters (if you get my drift), never seen anything like it. Could it be rootbound or just a mutant? Acceptable if I try to send a pic of it? Also thinking of sending a pic to a local joke newspaper. Anyone else have this happen?
