    6 week old EE, substantially smaller than it's siblings of same breed/age. It's crop is the size of a walnut, while the siblings crops are empty. It does this strange side to side neck twisting thing. It seems to have a plumbing issue moving food from the crop. My question is since this is happening at such a young age, will it be a lifetime of plumbing issues?
