    I noticed today after my girls were free-ranging that one of them has what I guessed was a big, hard crop...I felt one of the other girls and didn't feel the same thing. I don't have grit available to them but they get enough outside from what I've heard. They have sand readily available to them along with regular dirt outside. She was acting normally...do I have anything to worry about?

    wait until morning and fill again...they're probably just full of goodies. if it's the same tomorrow, read about sour crop. [​IMG]

    I agree. Feel it in the morning. If it has not gone down, it may be sour or impacted.
