One of our RIR hens has been isolating herself since yesterday. She's about 8 months old and not eating much. I checked her out yesterday morning and she seemed fine...but I noticed her crop was large and seemed full of food (unusual since it was early in the morning). By evening, it felt like it was full of liquid and very large. This morning it feels like it's filled with air - squishy and large. Have never seen this in any of our chickens. She ate a small bit of fresh corn and a couple sips of water this morning. I don't want to lose her but am not sure how to help. Any suggestions?
