2 yr old hen with swollen chest. Not looking good.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a 2 year old hen that has been molting for quite some time.  Today I notice a bulge just below her neck on her chest.  All the feathers are gone.  Her crop is drooping.  Any ideas from anyone?

 

Please help.

It looks like a crop issue.  Alice is very lethargic and her comb is pretty limp.  Color is still good.  Anyone have a prognosis?  I added a little more apple cider vinegar to their water hoping that will help.

 

Thanks in advance for any comments or experience with this issue.
