    Hi again...ok...now I am moving on to thinking that maybe my hen has an impacted crop. Anyone familiar with this? It's treatment? I treated my hen with Sevin powder last night and it killed literally all but one lice....she is much happier now........please let me know about crop issues.......what side of the chicken is it located? Does it feel sort of like a beanbag when touched? Etc. thanks!!

    The crop is sort of on the right side of the neck...it can feel like a bean bag. The best way to tell if a crop is impacted to take away the food over night and see if the crop is empty in the morning...if it's still full feeling, then you might have a problem.
    I'm glad the the lice issue is being taken care of.
