    to check for impacted crop, check it at roost time.,,it should be full..
    then recheck in the morning before they eat..it should be empty, or flat..
    feel for any lumps or grainy feeling..

    the crop is found near the bottom of the neck, at the top of the breast..slightly to the right (on the chicken)

    I like to feel them by reaching from the back..

    check the droppings..color and consistency.
