    I first noticed this last night when putting them back in the coop after free range. At the Time I wrote it off as a full crop despite feeling liquid instead of like food. It is still there this morning though so I would like to know what I need to do. She is a 2 yo black copper marans

    Search for pendulous crop and see if that fits.

    Are you sure it's liquid? They can also rupture their air sacs in that area.

    It's the sour top I followed direction and she threw up rot... Ugh , I'm putting her in a spare pen where I can keep an eye on her. The smell was not as bad as I read so I assume it was caught early but still
