Please forgive me ... the question is unclear ... probably because of my own ignorance.

Did you mean their crop or their comb? What do you mean by looping over?

I saw your pics, good looking birds :)

the comb.. sorry about that wasn't sure what it was called.
Okay, thank you! The crop is part of the digestive tract and I didn't want to give you a wrong opinion!

It is perfectly normal for a chicken's comb to be limp and flopped over sometimes. It is common to see after laying and can even look a little pale right after. If anything, it means they could use a little water just now ... but it is normal and NOT a problem!

More important Is color. If the comb is CONSISTENTLY pale, could mean a health issue.
