    Our little showgirl has a mysterious bump at the base of its throat that recedes if you poke it and it's soft. Any ideas?

    The picture makes it seem like it's just her crop full of food! Can you feel her crop elsewhere? If so, where is it in relation to the crop?

    Looks like a crop with food in it. It will go down when the food is digested unless the little chick keeps it full.
