    My silver gray dorking, lily, has a huge, egg sized bulge on her chest. I suspect she has impacted and or distended crop. none of the other chickens are as big as hers. Is there anything I can do for her? I hope she lives. [​IMG]

    I'd separate and keep an eye on her. Is it always that big, or only in the evenings? Is it empty in the morning? Is it hard or spongy?

    How is her other behavior? Perky? Does it look like she is losing weight at all? Are her poops brighter green that normal or watery with little chunks?

    Any info you can give helps us to help you!

    she is very active. I belive it may be a false alarm, as all my other chicken's crops are the same size as hers. Thank You for your help.
