    Good evening........After reading so much about "impacted" or "sour" crop, is it possible that my Hens are eating a lot, all of a sudden, because of the cold weather? They are all getting a "swollen crop" every evening, for the past few days. Hopefully, it is fuel for heat?? Thanks............Don P.S. it is gone(the swelling) by morning.
