    Hi everybody, so late this afternoon I went to feed my girls and I noticed that on my Lang Shang hen eclipse her breast was quite large and I'm not sure what it is. Help!

    Yes it was on the right side and it felt really heavy and squishy.

    Don't worry... the crop is part of your chickens anatomy... its where they store all the food they have eaten till it can be digested! wait till tomorrow morning before she has eaten and check it again... I'll bet you'll notice its gone!
