Ok i just noticed on my buff oprington hen a large mass on her right side in her breast area , almost the size of a tennis ball. She is a year old , and is laying and seems fine.
I see a little bit of feather loss on her back but that may be due to molting im not sure , but this mass isnt that big but it concerns me , i think i can feel little hard things in it like the food she eats maybe a little hay?
Im really scared , this is my favorite buff orp poor little gina whats wrong with her ? I feed her layer crumbles and the odd , lettuce bread and grapes

please help , if u need more info ill be happy to provide.

Sounds like she has a full crop - it's normal, specially at the end of the day.

If she is acting normal and seems fine, I wouldn't worry!

I agree with the other poster sounds like she just has a full crop... Easeiest way to find out though is take food away tonight and check her int he morning to see that it has gone down.. I have a couple EEs that will stuff their crop FULL scared me too the first few times....
