One of my hens seems to have a fluid fiiled breast. I read on some other threads to massage it so I did that and fluid started coming out of her mouth that was dirty and smelled like poop and some scratch came up with it as well. When massaging it just felt like a ballon filled with fluid. Is this a problem with her crop abd am I doing the right thing. She is acting fine. The breast had gotten so swollen that she has rubbed a patch of feathers off the lower part of her breast from her feet rubbing against the swollen area from walking. Please help.
