Is he really overly fat or is he retaining water?

What specific greens are you feeding him? Do you feed him hard veggies like squash, peas, carrots, etc?

My chucks all looked bloated, and they had smears instead of droppings. I started grinding up grassland tortoise pellets, and their stools firmed up almost immediately, and over time,they didn't slim down, but the bloating went away. These are high fiber pellets and I think that chucks do not get enough fiber.
