    Hi,
    I have a golden laced wyandotte bantam that has had runny poop and messy butt feathers for a while now. She eats well and has no other problems.
    I have just brought her in the house to try and worm her and have had a chance to observe her better now she is seperated.
    Her poop is VERY watery, it is actually soaking through the box I have her in right now it is that bad. Her crop is also huge, it feels watery and floppy just like a water balloon, it was still like that this morning before she had eaten.
    Any ideas if this is ok?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the link. So is this an impacted crop?
    I am new to chickens and never seen this before.
