    Ok, I am a novice at chickens so bear with me if this is a dumb question but I have noticed that 3 of my chickens look like the right side of their front, what would be their breast area, is popped out. Almost lopsided. If I touch it, it seems normal feeling but just looking at the hens you can tell there is a bump. It doesnt go down and not all of my hens have it. One is 7 months old and the other 2 are 2 years old.

    Thank you! That is totally what it is!!!! I feel a bit dumb but I didn't know that was the crop. And now I know I'm probably feeding them too much cause that crop is always out!

    If you check them in the morning, all their crops will prob be empty.
