This morning when doing random crop checks, I noticed my Barred Rock's crop seemed quite full for first thing in the a.m. Upon massaging it to get a better feel, it broke apart into a bunch of pebbly or gravelly feeling bits. I wouldn't say it's full--at least not in the classic impaction way--because it's not big or hard. It's just not what I'd call emptied, either. It feels like there's a very small handful of pebbles in there or something. Is it normal for grit to stay in the crop overnight? And if not, any thing I can do to help her pass it? She's acting fine, and last I checked her poops are big and solid, so I assume stuff is getting through (I'll keep an eye out on that today) .
