    My 3 year old decided 2 of my hens needed a bath. Drowned one. The other I have under a heat lamp in the garage (actually had to steal the heat lamp from my chicks, good thing it is nice and warm in southern Arizona). I am holding food and water until she is warm and dry. Her neck, we're guessing its her crop, is swollen. We figure it is water from being half drowned. Is there anything I need to do to help drain it?

    Just looked up where the crop is, and the swollen part is up on her neck... but she's huddled up so I am not sure if it's her crop or somewhere above...
