    I found a week chick, 5 day old. POOFY! Feels like air filled. I can hear a noise when I push. Weak. Any chance this is an impacted crop? What could it be? Help please, chick in my hand now!

    Not really sure but it is a possibility. Research it if you have time. Just put in the google search "impacted crop symptoms". I hope someone can help you with this.
