and I still don't know quite what to do. Someone please tell me which condition my hen has. I noticed a couple of days ago her crop was hanging down and swinging like a pendulum. I researched here and read all about different conditions and different ways to correct them. I felt her crop and could feel what I think are grains and/or small stones. There was also a very solid ball. My daughter said she thought she saw her eat a frog so I was thinking okay that's what it is. However, I decided to push harder on it and it will break up and feel squishy and then form into a lump again later but not as hard. I isolated her night before last without food (only water). Her crop was the same the next day. I went ahead and released her (probably should not have) and then when we returned home I isolated her again since she looked no different. Today she still has her huge crop. I'm keeping her in isolation now with only water and I really need some reassurance on what to do. Our birds free range and are locked up at night. We feed pellets and some scratch grains (maybe I've been giving them too much of that) but she is the only one of her breed (I have 4 others like her) that this has happened to. I know I'm rambling but a few days ago my 12 year old daughter witnessed a hawk killing one of our chickens and then she had to handle that on her own (I was not home) and then her goat died last night and I don't think I can stand another mishap. Here are a couple of pictures. Let me know if you need better ones and please help me. Thanks. As you can see, she still looks beautiful, clear eyes, very energetic..etc.
