My chicken wouldn't come out of the coop today so I just let her hang out there for a while, but I started to get worried so I tried to entice her out with her favorite treats. After hours of checking her out and searching the web, I am coming up unsure. At first I thought it was an impacted crop as it is sticking out but she hasn't eaten anything today. When I feel it, it just feels like a bone but its not squishy like they say on the forums, I squeezed around the sides and it doesn't feel like anything is there. I haven't seen her eat or drink anything all day and she just sits there. Any ideas? Also, I don't think she has pooped either cause it doesn't seem like any of the poop under her is all that fresh and she hasn't moved all day so you'd think there would be a mess under her.

She's not moody, but she did just poop (it's white and a little runny but no blood in it), so I am hoping that is a good sign...she isn't hanging out in the nest box, she is on her perch, so I don't think she is broody, also, I am in Texas so it's not cold outside so I don't think I need to bring her in. Hoping for a miracle.

So it's just white? Nothing solid in it?

No, there was nothing solid in it, she is still just sitting around and mostly keeping her eyes closed now.
