    What does she eat? Could she have eaten the bedding? If so, make sure she has chick grit. Gentle crop massage (down low so she doesn’t aspirate) and little chunks of coconut oil may help. Lots of knowledge on crop issues on these forums. Hopefully with crop issues in chicks. I’m concerned she could have a blockage somewhere. I’m sure someone else who has dealt with this will chime in. Good luck!
