    I have a 13 week old EE pullet that seems to have a very full crop all of the time. I am restricting food tonight, just to see if her crop will be smaller in the morning. I massaged her crop tonight and later, my stepdaughter said she threw up.

    I don't know if this is good or bad. I am hoping that she will not need me to try and empty it.

    Does anyone have any advice?

    I raised this girl from a chick and I am very attached.
