I have a 6 week old Bantam Duckwing (i think!) who is very whiny and needy. She's always trying to get under the bigger chickens' wings to cuddle-other than that, she does everything normal. Her crop though is soft. It feels almost like it's a bubble...very soft and fluid-y feeling. Like I said, she's normal except for the neediness, but she also does this weird thing with her neck. She stretches it up and moves her head around, sort of like a gag, but it also looks like she's trying to rearrange her neck. Does that make sense? I'm taking my Francine to an avian vet today to look at her eye, which is still giving her problems, so I'll ask the vet what this could be. I'd really like some real chicken ppl to give me an opinion though. Thanks everyone!
