    Yesterday I butchered a ranger hen with pendulous crop. She had issues for several months but was never bad, the last 2 weeks it got worse so she was added to the bunch I processed.
    Her crop was the size of a softball, I removed it intact, her gizzard was small with a dark portion. Her other internal organs looked fine, it's just a skinny carcass.
    Has anyone had this issue and is the chicken safe to eat? It was the gizzard that has me thinking twice.
