What does a normal but very full crop feel like? My 4 week old chick has a very large crop. It actually caught my attention when I peeked in on them. It does feel very firm, but pliable. I have never seen that happen before. When people say it feels "hard" for an impacted crop how hard it is? Will I know the difference? Her behavior seems fine. She poops fine too, but this large crop is very recent. I weighed her earlier this afternoon and the fullness was not there at that time. I did feed her and her brothers three or four tiny earthworms today for the first time. Was that a bad thing? I have three chicks total. They are all in a brooder with 80 degree temp (indoors with a heat light). Your thoughts are appreciated. Nervous chick mamma.
