I have no idea what I have done or how to fix it. Please help if you have any ideas.
Do you mean the crop is full?
That can be normal after eating. if they are comfortable and acting normal...just see if it goes down for tomorrow morning.
yes that is what I mean. The crop has grown bigger and bigger over the last 4 days. It is now the size of a baseball on both of them. The other 8 chickens are fine (different breeds). They are acting normal.
Is the crop squishy like air or water or hard and grainy?
My chicken has a giant crop too. His is squishy. Oh God I hope I havent messed him up. HELP
I only felt the one with the larger crop and it was for sure not hard. It is late now so I will have to check them in the morning.
If it's abnormaly large, take away food and water overnight. If the crop is smaller in the morning then they should be fine, just gorged themselves.
You can search for impacted or sour crop to help.
Edited because I can't spell... probably still can't.
Thank you. I did go out and feel them again and yes they did seem hard. I looked it up and I will try the oil and massage to help loosen it.
