hello everyone. i am new to having chickens and have a problem with one of my hens she is only 9months old and has a large swollen mass that feels semi solid located at her breast bone area. could her crop be impacted and if so what can i do about it. I have called several local vets and it seems that most people do not worry about chickens . No of the vets work on or know much about chickens. So any advise would be appreciated thanks.

I was told by the vet to give her olive oil 2x a day be slow so she doesn't inhale it. I takes 1-2T each time and it may take a few days for it to pass.
