    Is it possible for my hen's crop to be on the left side and not be a pendulous crop? I have a 5 month old black silkie bantam whose crop is on the left. It is full most nights and empty in the morning. She is healthy otherwise and has never had an impacted or sour crop. Thanks in advance for any input.

    To me it sounds as if all is normal in Clucktown. As long as her crop is emptying overnight there is no problem.

    Thanks, sourland. I am a worrier - happy for the reassurance.

    I agree with sourland--it is probably normal, as long as she acts fine otherwise.
