(Yes our girls are named after professional women bowlers...tee hee). I'm fairly sure our sweet barred rock Liz has an impacted crop...and sadly I think it's partially my fault. I've been letting them roam around the lawn and I was totally unaware of the fact that tall grasses can be harmful to their crop emptying (first time chicken owner as of this past March). I noticed yesterday that she was doing a jerky motion with her neck that looked like she was trying to get something down and that's when I realized her crop was bigger/droopier than our other two. I massaged at her crop and can feel that it has a lot in there but I can move the stuff around and it feels like there is grit in there (this didn't seem to bother her at all). I locked them in their roost for the night last night so that I could make sure I checked her first thing this morning and sure enough she still has a ball of stuff in her crop. I've tried to do a bit of research on how to help her and so far I've separated her into a separate run I have and put her on our porch so she can't get to anymore food for the day and given her access to water. I'm really crossing my fingers that she can process what's in there out and we won't have a big issue. Any tips or advice would be appreciated. Of course she's my favorite....mainly in the fact that she likes me the most. She likes to fly up onto my shoulder if I come by her and she's got the funniest little sassy personality! I hope she can get past this!!
