Impacted or sour crop? - Page 2

OK.
Last night her crop felt a bit more hardened and "normal". Still seemed strange to me. I will check on her again tonight.

Hi, I noticed goat that one of our chickens has what seems to be a very large crop and it's also bald? It doesn't look red or anything just bald and stretched skin? She is broody at the moment and has been for the last week or so. I am new to keeping chickens!! Is this normal? What should I do if big?? Thank you in advance for your help!!

You might want to post a new thread since this is an old one. smile.png. I don't know if anyone will reply to it.

My chickens used to pace pretty bad against the fence when they wanted out, I always assumed that's what caused their baldness on the crops.. look for things like that is all I've got

Also I think as long as the crop empties by morning it's not really impacted and the likelihood of it becoming sour is minimal since the food is moving through before it can sour? Did you ever figure it out ChickenLover?

Turned out not to be any of those as far as I know, but all my chickens (mainly GSLs) get this sandy texture in their crops and it is watery too. It never empties and it hangs like a brick in a bag that's about to rip out. The hens live for awhile, then they will up and die. Someone mentioned that crack corn/scratch(too much of it) can cause something like this, but I never had the problem before? idunno.gif
