I have noticed one of my hen's breast is really poking out. I have added more grit and added some of Bragg's ACV to the water. I thought it may be "Sour Crop". I have never had chickens before so I am a newbie. I have included some pictures and if you can help that would be great.

She could have just gutsed on the food, or is suffering a slowdown of digestion for whatever reason; if it doesn't clear overnight, that's a problem, but until then, I wouldn't worry about it.

Best wishes.

Any foul smell from her breath ? If so..look up sour crop ...she may have an impacted crop... try looking at the "sticky" at the top of the"Emergencies etc header...click on helpful references and links...scroll down to "Medical treatment and dosage".. again..scroll down to .find the topic "impacted and sour crop issues"...see if her symptoms match and treat accordingly...

Good luck!
