That's probably her clavicle or wishbone. She has likely lost a lot of weight from this crop issue. Are her eyes always closed? Is she droopy and does she just want to sleep standing up?

Did you read the article I linked to?

I can’t feel her crop or find it

Do you understand where the crop is located? It's on the chest wall slightly on the right side. When it's empty, it cannot be felt.

It appears your chicken may have a bacterial infection. Can you answer some questions?

Is there a compost pile where the chickens dig that your family tosses rotten fruit and veggies?
