    I didn't notice anything wrong with her this morning, now I see this. They are free ranging birds, they eat all purpose poultry food, there isn't any grit, but there's pebbels all over our yard. This specific hen though is 3-4 years, not sure if age matters? They also eat kitchen scraps

    The hen look very normal, i think she is just pushing food/someting dow nher neck into her crop!! Mine do that the whole time!! i have seen them do it more when they free range! Did you see her eat grass before that??
