    My hen has a very swollen chest any ideas to help? I'm very worried she is two years old and lays about one egg each day she has laid one within the last 24 hrs she vomited water this morning she looks like she has a giant tumor under her neck at the beginning of her chest it seems to be more on one side please help! She is pooping barely eating and drinking mostly she has been standing around all day...
    I can't attach an image right now, but if any symptoms sound familiar please help. I was thinking hat she may have broken or sprained a wing, or her chest. She could've fell of a high perch. She also could've eaten something bad. Anything helps, thanks:(

    It turned out to be an impacted crop, we got her to throw it up. For future reference: give them water then hold her upside down and rub the bump around a little bit, they'll throw up a lot
