    Is it her chest or her crop? If its her crop, she could have an impacted crop. How long has it been like this?

    Do a quick forum search on the following two phrases:

    "Sour Crop"

    "Impacted Crop"

    Both will give a nice detailed explanation on what to do. An impacted crop, if it were that, is a very serious life-threatening condition for a chicken.
