Crop surgery is best left for a vet to perform.

OK. Let's take a look at all of this again. Forgive me, we are 11 pages in and I need you to refresh my memory here.

What exactly does the crop feel like in the morning?
She's not laying eggs?
Is she molting?
What treatment(s) have you given? Just the coconut oil or anything else?

In the morning it feels very hard and full but normally at night it feels a lot better and just a bit bigger than a normal crop. She has not laid in about a week. She is not molting. I have been doing coconut oil about 1-2 times a day but it doesn’t really work. And I gave her the stool softener once a day for 3 days straight but not anymore and it didn’t work.

I don't blame you for letting her with the others. I rarely separate a bird unless they are in danger of being attacked by the flock.

You can still give the coconut oil, but I think I would see how she does after a day with the flock, then re-check the next morning.

You are checking her crop before she eats/drinks in the morning correct?
