    Hey guys, looking for advice for our year old Maran.
    For the past month now she's been having issues with her crop being enlarged. It comes and goes but for the past week it's about the size of a fist and she's been "drooling" up every now and again.
    She hasn't layed since we noticed it, and everyone else is laying. She eats and drinks but isn't herself (sluggish, not excited to go out)
    Recently she has been puffing out her chest and wiggling it side to side so I think it's starting to really bother her.

    We got chicken grit and mixed it in their food but that was about two weeks ago with little to no results. Their diet is the same, so nothing new there

    Any ideas on treatment or what it could be? Thanks in advance.

    Bump- she's eating less now and I'm worried she's on her way out...
