    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.
