My little Americana seems to be more quiet that usual and has a swollen area just above her breast, what could this be and what should I do?

How old is she? What feed do you have her on? It could be her crop that you're feeling...it fills up when they eat, and then empties. Does it feel squishy? Or, more like air?

It's probably her crop. Check on it every few hours; you should feel it going down & then back up again as she eats. Have you seen her eat/drink?
