I need some help here. I was watching the cameras and i noticed my one hen standing on the roost for some time when she was supposed to be sleeping. I noticed that she was like twitching her neck oddly. It looks like it just started when she went up for the night. She keeps doing it every couple minutes. Does anyone know what this could be?

She looks like she's adjusting her crop. They sometimes do this when they're trying to clear a blockage from their crop.

Check if it's emptying overnight?
