    Is it full of fluid, seed or grass?

    No, its kinda hard, but i can move it around. the guy i bought her from said she wasnt used to free feeding, i guess he threw food down for them, so could it be just that she is over eating?

    If she's lethargic and her crop didn't clear, I suspect that something is going on. Is she drinking?
