My barred rock hen, 8 months. Today, during my weekly hen inspection. My barred rocks crop feels like playdough like clay. I massaged most of it down. What do I do??? Help??

Don't give him any food only water for 12 hours. See if the crop has gone down to more normal size. How long has it been play-dough like?

Is it squishy like a water balloon ir hard? If squishy, most likely sour crop. Seperate, withhold food for 24hours. Give her acv water. Second day give her yogurt all the while massaging crop. I've read olive oil slows digestion so be careful with use.

Wait until morn and feel her crop before she eats. Then look up sour or impacted crop.
