    not the crop area.

    about halfway up the neck feels like a knot. seems to be hard like skeletal. I wondered if she sprained, or injured it somehow jumping off the roost and landing wrong... She is eating and acting fine. No strange head movements. I read something about vitamin deficencies. They probably have gotten more scratch grain then they should and they are free ranging. as well.

    might be something stuck... try a wee bit of bread dipped in olive oil and gently massage.
