    Lace Wyandotte eating but afterwards does a neck dance

    I found our Silver Lace in a corner with her feathers all fluffed. I picked her up and she seemed thinner than normal. She wasn’t eating with the other girls. The hard freeze was hitting so brought her inside along with another hen with a hurt foot. She had watery stools. Her crop felt full...

    Accidentally cut the crop

    Hey everyone! First time butchering one of my roosters and as I was doing it I believe I cut the crop (the balloon type thing on the esophagus) . I was wondering if I still removed it, if it is safe to still eat the chicken? It looked like there wasn't anything in the crop when it happened. Any...

    Post impacted crop surgery

    Hey guys!!! So I recently had to do impacted crop surgery on one of my beautiful BR. It’s been about five days since the surgery, and she’s doing really really well.

    Lump on chest of chick?

    Good evening, One of our chicks has a large, round lump on her chest. I know that chickens have crops, but this seems larger than her sisters and hard. This is also our baby chick who has random bald spots, so I'm getting worried. Does it look normal or should we be worried?

    Impacted duck crop?!

    Hi everyone, I just want to check my duckling is okay! He seems to eat and drink fine (his breathing has been a little stuffy when he’s eating) but he almost looks like his chest isn’t right?? I’m going to book him a vet appointment but just wanted to see what everyone thought before I did:(

    sour crop?

    Hello! While checking my chickens' crops, I found that one had a very squishy crop compared to the others. I hadn't noticed before because she acts perfectly fine, but now I'm concerned after looking it up. I went back in the morning to check if it was empty and it did feel flatter. Does anyone...

    Help! Sour vs impacted crop?

    Help! Help! My golden sexlink is about a year old. I believe she has a crop issue. I think that this has been building for a few days (3-4 days). Yesterday she ate a lot, but then distanced herself from the other hens. Not sure if she has been pooping or not. I gave her some water mixed with...

    Help! Scabs all over chicken

    A few days ago, I noticed our Delaware was losing feathers. She's a few months over a year so I thought she was having an off first molt and didn't notice anything on a cursory check. Yesterday, she was lethargic and drinking a lot of water. Upon checking her, I found horrible dark gray scabs...

    Hi everyone, My sweet hen Penny has an ongoing sour crop but recently started having unusual poops. I was very worried about her because she wasn’t preening, eating or drinking water and her crop was really bloated. She ended up having a very unusual poop (see pictures). I have never seen...

    8 week old chick hunched over, large crop?

    I have 3, 8 week old chicks and the last few days one that I think is the only pullet has been more docile and all hunched inside her feathers most of the day, with her short tail pointing down. I attached some bad quality pictures, but it gives the idea of how she has been looking, even when...

    Impacted Crop

    I have a Silkie hen that her crop is huge and will not go away over night. I took her to the vet on Friday and they said that the X-ray (yes, I spent way to much for this hen) shows that everything in there looks like it can pass and I need to give her these drops and quarantine her from the...

    Sickly chick and trouble with crop not emptying

    I have six 1.5 week old d’Uccle chicks. I bought them from the feed store at 1 day old. They're on straw for substrate and eating medicated chick food made into wet mash. Most of them seem very robust and their crops get full and empty pretty normally. I’ve noticed a few gag every once in a...
