    We have an O>E>G>B hen that has a swollen breast and a wing problem? She fell out of the coop yesterday and seems to be hurt? her breast is very swollen and her wing is kind of spread out. we have her in a kennel by herself now and her poop seems fine and she is eating. could something be stuck in her crow? please help.

    If the crop is not the problem, then she may have broken her keel(breast) bone. Common injury in chickens, but DQs them from show.

    Gently rub down her keel bone to feel for a break or seperation.
