    does anyone know whats wrong with her?
    Shes Swollen in front as big as an watermelon
    middle of the body is sucked up
    I'll get a picture of her as soon as it stops raining.
    She does not walk very well
    she stumbles and falls.

    How long has she been like this? Looks almost like what I've seen where hens can get this I forget what it's called.

    I do.believe its her crop it feels squishy and hard also
    I squished it around alittle and shot some vegetable oil down her throat to maybe flush out her crop.
    hoping it makes it pass soon

    You are near the best university in the state for vet needs, I think a Gainesville trip might be in order. Poor girl, hope she recovers for both of your sake
