Hello there. I have a light brahma hen that has a bulge in her crop, and it feels like a balloon filled with water. She is acting fine, not showing signs of sickness or such. Could it be sour crop? Tell me if pics are needed. Thx:)

Hello and :welcome. It doesn't sound like sour crop, mostly because you state her behavior hasn't changed. If you really think she has it, I would give some olive oil and massage , to help pass it along. You can also give yogurt and applesauce. Sorry wasn't more help. You can check out https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures. There are a lot of informative threads there to check out. I hope everything works out. :)
