A few days ago I noticed a protrusion in my chicken, Carmens chest. It looked like she had a large lump in her chest-almost like hanging breasts. I have always been concerned about her flopped over comb and wasn’t sure if that was a indication of something wrong. I looked up symptoms and came across impacted crop. Some of the examples looked just like her. Today I took her out of the coop to isolate her- but today she does not seem as busty. Almost normal. Not sure if this is because she hasn’t ate anything yet-but here are some photos of Carmen to see if anyone has any input. I could be over worrying but she had a very large chest that seem to have happened overnight. Even though today she looks normal I still want to be sure. She is acting normal- laid a egg yesterday and the day before. Happy as a clam- just had the protruded chest. Anyway! Thanks for reading

That's her crop. Check if it empties completely in the morning (before food). What is the texture of her crop?

Her crop should be on HER right.
