Is this normal?

Hi there! I got this little one yesterday and noticed she had a large lump on her chest when I got home. I’m assuming it’s just her crop-she was eating a ton at the store and has been very happy, active, and hungry here at home with the other chicks. I just want to check to make sure it is indeed her crop and not a problem.

That does seem kinda extreme. I'd keep an eye on that one to see if she is pooping or if her crop is backed up somehow.
Ok. She has been pooping and in fact pooped on my hand 10 minutes ago. Do you think she could be over eating? What would I need to do if her crop was backed up? Should I take the food away for a couple hours?
