    I have a hen who had an impacted crop that I operated on about 3 weeks ago she is eating just fine but she is positioning her body weird. She is standing almost completely upright with her bottom tucked beneath her. She sits and walks with her tail tucked under her. Any ideas or suggestions she is a good chicken and i hate seeing her this way. Please help!!

    Is she pooping? Is her crop normal now?

    yeah she is pooping, but it is more watery than solid. Her crop is fine now and the incision has healed nicely.
