I noticed that my four year old bantam Rhode Island Red has an enlarged crop. It is noticeably big, even from a distance, and she has worn some feathers off on the bottom. I understand that it is stretched now and will probably never go back completely to normal. I massaged it and it feels soft, except maybe for a hard spot on the side. Maybe. I gave her oil and massaged while holding her upside down and nothing came up. I might have done it wrong since I have never done this before. There is no odor. She is eating and lively. I put her in a dog crate and she had two healthy poos right away. She got some of my breakfast smoothie (peaches, strawberries, spinach and vegan protein powder with a bit of grated garlic for antibiotic properties) and she was keen on that. I put the crate in the coop so she could be near her friends and she right away started sticking her head through the bars to get at the feeder. She is a bit thin, but not alarmingly so. She was broody for quite awhile recently, so that might account for the thiness. So is she ok, or should I be worried? Her crop has been large before but I didn't know enough to be concerned, so I guess it got better. And she is eating, passing bowel movements and seems lively. Should I keep her separate and continue to treat or let her get back to her life with her silkie friends?
