There is a fluid like waggeling lumpy thing around the neck/chest area on one of my hens. What is it and what do I do about it? Does it effect the eggs? Is it contagious?

It's been there for several days and now she is scratching at it from the side.

And your sure its not her crop?
Is it still there in the morning before she eats?

If it is her crop, she may be bound up.

She has a impacted crop, I have one that keeps getting that problem over and over. I have done everything I know to do to prevent it but she will eat anything that comes across her path.
