    One of our baby chicks crop seems to be on the side and back of neck instead of the front? We just noticed it today... I felt it and the feathers are kind of gone that area. It feels like its full of food, not liquid. What would cause her crop to be there? Do I need to do anything?

    Can you post a pic? I seem to always have one or two chicks that have naked crop areas, it usually happens dying the "mini molt."
