    I let my 4 week old Golden Comet out to free range with her momma hen and the other chickens.. One of them jumped on her and now she has a small hole in her very full crop and you can see the the food in there.. What should i do?

    You can place a couple stitches or seal with super glue. i would wait until the crop is empty or is the hole is big enough, you can squeeze the food out. If it's just a puncture wound, I would place the chick in teh house by itself until the crop empties and without food until it's fixed.
