    Is there a way to tell before a problem happens? Where is the crop located?

    Hi, It's on the right side of the chest area and it will be a very apparent bulge, usually firm.

    You will get more help with this question in the other areas of the forum then the Coop and Run Design section so you may want to repost to get more information quicker.
