Ok, I was checking on, loving up on :-), my hens a second ago. My daughter wanted to hold one so I gave her a hen and then I noticed that her crop is swollen and squishy?!?!?!?!?!? I smelled her breath, nothing funny. I thought maybe it was some reaction to some kind of scrap I had given them. I checked the other girls, most of them not all of them, and their crops are small and hard and full of pullets. Should I be worried? Is something wrong with her???? I have had a drop in eggs recently, I don't knwo if these things are connected. Also, she isn't underweight, but she does weigh less than the other girls. Just so that I am clear, her crop is very squishy like a water balloon and it is pretty swollen. Any advice would be great.
